Course outline

The Construction Craft foundation apprenticeship allows you to experience various trades and start thinking about career pathways and what you’d like to do. This course is aimed at students who would prefer a more hands on practical based experience rather than focusing on a paper-based academic approach.

This mainly practical apprenticeship is designed to build your skills and allow you to experience a wide range of tasks.

To get the most from this hands-on approach to learning, you will need to commit to regular attendance so that your skills can develop.

This will build your confidence and make you more resilient when dealing with challenges.
