If you want to work in the construction industry, are physically fit, would like to work as part of team and in a variety of conditions, then this could be the career for you. The Plastering Apprenticeship combines elements of hands-on learning with classroom instruction. As a plasterering apprentice, you will learn how to apply different kinds of plaster to internal walls and ceilings to prepare them for decorating. You might also apply coatings to outside walls, such as sand and cement render or pebble-dash. After two years, successful apprentices can progress onto the advanced apprenticeship.

What will I learn?

"I've always preferred hands-on learning so plastering really appealed to me. I was given the option to sign up to an apprenticeship if one became available so I could earn money whilst learning. The facilities and workshops enabled me to practice various types of plastering skills ."Sam Bamforth
