Apprenticeship schemes

FeRFA has been successfully running apprenticeship schemes since 2006 enabling employers to raise the skills level within their companies and provide a route for unskilled employees to gain an industry-wide recognised qualification and the CSCS blue Skilled Worker card.

For those member employers who have successfully supported an employee through the FeRFA apprenticeship programme, the FeRFA Apprentice Ambassador logo will appear next to their entry in the Find a FeRFA Company members listing demonstrating their commitment to training and qualifying their employees.

FeRFA offers three apprenticeship schemes for all newcomers to the industry:

  • In Situ Flooring: Resin
  • In Situ Flooring: Screeds
  • Prepare and Profile Substrates

All of the above run for 18 months and lead to an NVQ level 2 Diploma. Schemes usually start in Spring and Autumn, please contact FeRFA for start dates. All schemes are supported by CITB and grant funded for CITB levy-payers. There is no upper age limit for applicants. The schemes involve classroom and practical sessions plus employer-supported on-site experience. Click on the links below to download information:
