Information for Apprentices
A number of Training Group members offer apprenticeships which will provide you with full-time employment, a minimum salary of £156 per week, hands-on industry experience and the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification and complete additional supporting courses.
Apprenticeships within steeplejacking and lightning protection are sponsored by employers and take place over two years at the National Construction College – East (NCC) at Bircham Newton and on-site with your employer. Apprentices attend college for up to four weeks at a time and work towards S/NVQ Level 2 in Steeplejacking or Lightning Conductor Engineering.
Information for Employers
The S/NVQ Level 2 apprenticeships in both steeplejacking and lightning conductor engineering are available to all candidates regardless of age, and course costs are fully funded by the NCC provided you are a CITB levy-registered employer.
Employers taking on an apprentice under the age of 18 should be aware of the HSE’s guidance on employing young people on-site.
