About the Apprenticeship+ programme

As a participant of Laing O’Rourke’s Apprenticeship+ programme, you will benefit from a formal college education, leading to a technical certificate and NVQ 2 and 3 in your chosen discipline.

You will also gain a broad set of technical and trade skills through on-the-job training, supported by experienced tradespeople and construction professionals. A dedicated mentor and apprentice officer will work closely with you throughout - providing regular feedback on your progress.

The programme will range between two and four years, depending on the qualification route and will also include an annual personal development module, designed to support you as you begin to build your career.
