Apprenticeship courses

NHBC is passionate about using its expertise, knowledge and experience to support the next generation of construction professionals.

We’ve created our apprenticeship qualifications with input from across the industry to ensure that they meet the needs of employers and employees alike. By choosing an NHBC apprenticeship, you can be assured that our fully qualified tutors use their own construction and training expertise to support you at every step, meaning you join the world of work with the skills you need to have a rewarding and long lasting career.

NHBC’s house-building apprenticeships are available to anyone aged 16+ and living in England. Whether you’ve just taken your GCSEs, you’re still studying or you’ve already been in the world of work for a while, an apprenticeship could be the perfect next step for you.

The minimum length of an apprenticeship is 12 months, but some can last two, three or four years. This will depend on the Standard being followed, the level of apprenticeship, the specific occupational area/sector and the prior skill levels of the apprentice.

Once you start your apprenticeship you will be taken through an induction programme which will guide you through your training and the contents of your apprenticeship, including the studying of any formal qualifications. We will help and advise you throughout your apprenticeship. Please do not hesitate to ask questions if there is anything you are unsure about.
