An Apprenticeship combines learning at college/training provider with on-site experience, to give Apprentices the right mix of technical and practical skills. 

The MPBA is working towards the delivery of training against the standard Construction Assembly and Installation Operative - Relocatable Buildings (Level 2) by the end of 2023. 

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a job, with training. You are employed and paid an initially lower wage to perform a particular role, with an understanding that you will be trained through experience and qualifications to perform the role to a defined standard. Your employer will give you tasks to perform, and the training provider will give you the skills to perform those tasks.

What funding is available?

If you are a large employer, the Apprenticeships will be funded via your Apprenticeship Levy. If you are not captured by the Levy, funding is available from a variety of sources.
