Building Maintenance

This is a Level 2 work based apprenticeship that has diploma elements infused within its structure. During your time on this apprenticeship, you will be introduced to a variety of different construction areas including; Plumbing, Tiling, Decorating, Plastering, Wood Trades, Roofing, Access Equipment and Customer Service.

This is a two year programme, and you will need to have an employer who covers all aspects of Building Maintenance (which the College can support you in finding) in order to develop the skill required to complete this programme and prepare you to work in the industry. You will attend College for one day per week and work for a recognised company for the remainder of the week.

You will attend South Devon College for one day per week for two years at Level 2. You will work in an approved workshop for one day a week, where you will be observed to assess your practical competence. You will also sit a test at the end of each unit to assess your knowledge and understanding.

After completing this apprenticeship, you could progress onto an apprenticeship in your chosen trade area, for example carpentry or brickwork.

What will I learn?

My time at South Devon College really helped me excel and realise my potential in the construction industry. There are more options and career paths in construction than I first thought. I started as a carpentry apprentice and I am now training with my employer to become a Site Manager. It's a great industry to get into offering huge variety, and we have a lot of fun along the way too.Ricky Collyer
