Specialist Apprenticeship Programmes – Level 2 in Demolition, Level 2 in Hazardous Waste Removal

Demolition and Asbestos Removal are highly specialised and hazardous activities that are closely linked to the Construction Industry as specialist sectors. A wide range of skills, techniques and equipment enable the Demolition and Asbestos Removal Operative to carry out their duties in the removal of any structure or hazardous waste in a safe and competent manner.

There is a shortage of new entrants into these sectors and current training provision is by individual employers providing on the job training together with limited supplier product training.

This specialist apprenticeship programme is designed to be delivered in a modularised manner by a mix of formal instruction off the job, followed by supervised on the job training at employer level with a final end assessment.  This supervision will be conducted by a competent person and there will be a candidate record book to evidence training received.

The trainee will gain experience, through off the job training sessions, of every aspect of these industries but the scheme also provides flexibility through the on the job training elements to suit the employer’s core business requirements whilst delivering the NVQ/SVQ Level 2 outcome after a 2 year training period.

The contents of this course are designed to ensure that the Operative is able to understand the hazards and the safe working practices within these specialised industries and upon completion of training the Operative will be able to operate equipment to industry standards of competence.

If you are interested in a career of either of these industries, please get in touch for further information.  All our structured programmes attract CITB grant funding to those companies who are CITB levy payers.
