Summary

This qualification is a one-year course aimed at those looking to work in the construction industry specifically at an advanced level of plumbing. It will provide you with a range of specialist technical, practical skills and knowledge, which will equip you to seek employment or further training in the plumbing industry.

What do I need to join?

Learners will require four GCSEs at grade 4 or above, including English and Maths.

How will I know how I am doing?

To gain this qualification, learners must successfully complete all the mandatory assessments: • Theory exam • Synoptic assignment • Employer involvement requirement

Maths & English

A key requirement for future progression and employment is a good understanding and application of knowledge and skills in both English and maths. Learners who are enrolled on this programme will be provided with opportunities to use the skills gained through achieving GCSE grade 4 in English and Maths prior to joining.

Employability

At SGS, we aim to provide learners with the skills required in order to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude. At SGS, we work with you on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will discuss progress and any areas for development.

Work Experience

As part of their overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter.
