Carpentry - Apprenticeship at Waltham Forest Chamber of Commerce Training Trust

Course description

This is one of the broadest Apprenticeships available, covering a range of occupations from bricklaying and plant maintenance to civil engineering and joinery. Construction is a multi-billion pound industry that deals with developing and building anything from a housing estate to a bridge. Few industries are as wide-ranging, or offer so many different career pathways. Apprentices have a lot of occupations to choose from – if you’re the sort who enjoys physical work, you could help lay the foundations of a ten-storey building; build scaffolding around a famous landmark due for restoration; plaster the interior of an office building; or maintain heavy plant. Apprentices with a flair for organisation could help make sure projects run on time and within budget; liaise with suppliers; or assist a civil engineer with design plans. With a construction Apprenticeship, you could be working on various sites in your region and beyond – there are also plenty of opportunities to work abroad, as many of the largest construction companies operate around the world. No matter where you start your career, if you have the determination and work hard, there’ll be plenty of chances to move up the career ladder.
