If you enjoy practical, physical work & being outside, this could be the trade for you. Construction Operatives do a wide range of tasks including working with concrete, laying drainage & pavements & excavating holes and trenches.
To be a groundworker, you will need a good level of fitness, a basic knowledge of building methods and an understanding of the materials used in construction. At the start of a job, you will help to prepare the site, unload and store building materials and once the work gets underway, further duties could include:
You will work on site for four days per week and attend college for one day a week. Most site hours are Monday to Friday, 08.00-17.00.
On completion of NVQ L2 in construction operatives you will gain your blue trade specific CSCS card which enables you to work as a qualified construction operative. There are also opportunities to progress into plant operations or into site supervisory or management roles.
K10 will enrol and fund your qualifications through a SFA funded training provider. It is likely to take 12-24 months to complete this apprenticeship, depending on current qualifications and experience.
Applicants need to have at least an Entry Level 3 in Functional Skills or GCSE grade 3 / D or above in English and Maths.
The passion and commitment to become a fully qualified construction operative. It would be advantageous if you have any construction based qualifications, have previous related work experience, CSCS and/or PASMA, but this is certainly not essential.
