Screeding apprentices complete final module

Screed 1 apprentices recently spent two days at the training facility of The Preparation Group in Lincoln learning about acoustic and thermal insulation, and underfloor heating systems.

The first part of the training module covered compliance and testing, robust details and installation methods for thermal and acoustic insulation, and was delivered by industry expert Ian Griffiths of Thermal Economics. The main focus of the second session was underfloor heating systems and installation methods from industry specialist Andy Vincent.

This is the final classroom module for this group who will use the skills learnt in the classroom to continue gaining experience in the workplace with their employers. They are due to complete in March 2017 following assessment by the FeRFA industry assessor. This group of apprentices will be the first in the UK to achieve the NVQL2 Insitu Flooring Screeds qualification via an apprenticeship route.

The apprentices in this group are shown in the centre with: (L-R) Andy Vincent (trainer), Michael Gibbs and Thomas Henderson (Trent Construction Services) and Scott Barclay from TPS360 then Ian Griffiths (trainer) of Thermal Economics.
