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 a Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard in Steeplejacking or Lightning Conductor Operative.
Information for Employers
The Apprenticeship Standards 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.
