Building and Construction Industry
This is the highlight of my week. At multi trade we work on a simulated building site doing everything from plastering, bricklaying, roofing, joinery and plumbing. We can try each sector or specialise in one area. I really feel like a mature learner doing this course because this is something I only thought I could do when I had left school. I feel great getting on the bus in my overalls and boots…beats a uniform!
The Multi Trade qualification is aimed at those who want to work in the building and construction industry.
The qualification has 6 pathways to cover across a range of maintenance tasks that come under the following broad headings:
- Carpentry and Joinery
- Painting and Decorating
- Tiling, Plastering
- Trowel Operations
Candidates must complete at least 2 of these pathways.
All work must be completed following industry recognised Safe Working Practices and in accordance with relevant legislation.
