There are both academic and work-based entry routes into a number of jobs in the
construction industry. It is possible to begin work as a trainee with a minimum of around five GCSEs (A*-C) or through an Advanced Apprenticeship in construction. To fully qualify you are required to complete a Higher National Certificate/Diploma (HNC/D) or foundation degree, followed by up to two years of assessed professional practice.
Apprenticeships require you to work 4 days a week and study at college part time on a day release basis 1 day a week. This is a good way of learning on the job whilst earning money at the same time.
This can be started following GCSEs at the age of 16 (Entry requirements 4-5 GCSE A* to C Grade inc English, Maths and Science). Upon leaving school, colleges offer many full time and part time courses. These courses open opportunities for learners who are already in, or about to enter into, employment.
If you are unsure of which job will best suit you, these courses cover a large number of units which can help you to understand what your main assets are.
At Quattro we currently have 3 apprentices on relevant courses who are aiming towards becoming Architectural Technicians, with one day a week day release to attend college.
If you would like to know more about apprenticeships and working at Quattro, you can either contact us directly or via the above form.
