Course Description

Wall and Floor Tiling Qualification type Apprenticeship What are the aims of this course? Apprenticeships allow 16-25 year olds to start work and earn a wage, while learning new skills that lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers in the industry, so they offer a structured programme that takes apprentices through the skills needed to do a job well. Most of an apprentice's training takes place on the job but they will also have to complete off-the-job training within college by day release or over a number of days in a block. Wall and Floor Tiling apprentices work towards a work-based NVQ qualification in addition to the nationally recognised Construction Diploma. What are the areas covered by this course? The Apprenticeship covers the following: - Work place safety - Efficient work practices - Moving and handling resources - Preparing backgrounds for tiling - Forming sand and cement screeds - Tiling wall and floor surfaces - Information, quantities and communication with others - Building methods and construction technology What qualifications do I need to do this course? Competition for places with employers can be fierce, so applicants will need to show that they are committed, happy to work as part of a team and individually, and able to use their own initiative. How is the course assessed? The NVQ is assessed through work-based evidence compiled as a portfolio. The Diploma is assessed on practical assignments, unit end tests and an online exam. Which qualification will I be awarded if I successfully complete the course? At the end of the programme apprentices will have achieved the Construction Skills NVQ Level 2 in Wall and Floor Tiling and the Construction Skills Level 2 Diploma in Wall and Floor Tiling. Apprentices will also have the opportunity to complete Key Skills at level 1, including Application of Number and Communication. What will I be able to go on to do after I've completed this course? On completion of the Wall and Floor Tiling Apprenticeship at level 2 apprentices can go on to complete the Wall and Floor Tiling Advanced Apprenticeship. What are the career opportunities? Apprentices who have completed their training can carry on working, maybe get promoted or go on to higher education in a college or university.
