Construction Centre


You will learn the required skills by attendance at the SBC Training construction centre on a ‘day release’ basis. You will further develop these skills in conjunction with your employer and be prepared for end point assessment (completion). By the end of the apprenticeship you will be able to work effectively using appropriate communication skills to solve day to day problems.

Bricklayer: Working safely you will learn to interpret drawings and be able to select appropriate materials and resources to lay bricks, blocks and other types of building components in mortar to construct and repair walls, foundations, partitions, arches and other structures. A bricklayer may work one-on-one or on larger jobs where a bricklaying group (gang) is required. This is a 2 year apprenticeship.

Carpentry & Joinery: You will learn to interpret drawings and work with building materials (most often wood) to create and install building components.  This typically involves shaping and cutting materials, installing finished materials like partitions, doors, staircases, window frames, mouldings, timber floor coverings and erecting structural components such as floor joists and roofs. You will learn to work safely, using the appropriate tools and to the quality specified. This occupation includes two different options and people will either work on a construction site as a Site Carpenter or in a workshop as an Architectural Joiner. This is a 2 year apprenticeship.

Installation/Maintenance Electrician: As an Electrician you will learn how to  install, maintain and repair electrical systems in industrial, commercial and domestic environments. Once trained you will be able to work on your own proficiently and without immediate supervision. In order to qualify you will  be able to apply health and safety and environmental regulations, relevant codes of practice and work to the requirements of the current edition of the Wiring Regulations. It is mandatory to complete the Level 3 Electrotechnical Diploma prior to qualifying. This is a 4 year apprenticeship.
