The Apprentice’s Role

Floorlaying is a hugely varied trade and you will work with many materials such as carpet, vinyl and floor tiles to name a few. You will learn to use specialist tools under the supervision of qualified floorlayers correctly and safely. You will develop your new skills both in the workplace as well as when you visit the Skills Group training centre.

You must adhere to health and safety in the workplace at all times and help ensure the smooth running of every project.

Throughout each working day you must wear the appropriate personal protective equipment.

Working Hours: The required working hours will be Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. You must be flexible with the working hours as some jobs may require later finishing times to complete the work for the client.

Holiday: 28 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays) will be paid each year, during the course of your apprenticeship.
