Ploughcroft are currently offering this apprenticeship to applicants between the ages of 16 and 24. Starting from the bottom up and attending college on block release (2 week blocks) apprentices quickly gain experience. We also off the opportunity to progress to Level 3 NVQ Diploma once Level 2 has been achieved.

Whilst not attending college you will work with the rest of the Ploughcroft team on-site at a variety of locations. Whilst initially your tasks will be simple and aimed at assisting team leaders, as you gain experience you will become confident in assisting team leaders on a day to day basis. You will be part of a vibrant hard-working team who strive for complete customer satisfaction every time.

You will learn new techniques, not currently taught in college, on preventing heat loss from buildings including installing warm roof system and our revolutionary Eco-Roof™ system.
