The Plumbing Apprenticeship covers training in a range of plumbing systems and components and their installation. The plumbing industry is a key part of the UKs construction industry. It is a highly competitive field that employs skilled craftspeople and technicians who work with a wide range of materials and technologies. Plumbers must be familiar with everything from domestic boilers to advanced welding techniques to computerised control systems.
From installing sanitation systems and servicing boilers to laying underground drainage pipes, plumbers work for the construction industry as well as for commercial and domestic clients. In recent years, the industry has also been involved with developing environmentally-sound technologies like solar water heating and rain water harvesting.
As a Plumbing apprentice, you will learn about the installation and maintenance of plumbing systems and components. You will also take a certificate in basic plumbing skills, covering safety, cold water and hot water systems, sanitation, and central heating.
On the Advanced Apprenticeship, your skill base will broaden to include working with gas, and you will be able to enter the profession at a higher level.
As a plumber, you could find yourself working in many different places – from construction sites to residential homes. Job prospects are good, with plenty of scope for self-employment.
