WATA’s first Scaffolding Apprentices Celebrate Success
WATA has recently seen their first Scaffolding group finish their Apprenticeship framework. The group of five apprentices started in May 2014 on an 18 month programme. They carried out 2 week block course every 3 months. The Apprenticeship is designed for people who want to become a skilled scaffolder accredited under the Construction Industry Scaffold Record Scheme (CISRS) and are aiming to pursue a career in the construction industry.
Sara Cartin the WATA Commercial Operations Director said “It’s great to be celebrating the end of our first scaffolding apprenticeship group, 18 months has certainly came around very quickly. They have been an excellent, well motivated group who have developed some good employability as well as trade skills throughout the course, I am sure they will be an asset to their employers business.
I am also pleased to say that across the 90 scaffolding apprentices we currently have on programme our predicted achievement is that 92 percent will remain on programme and get a full apprenticeship qualification providing a stepping stone into supervisory and management roles within the construction sector”
