Hi there looking for an adult apprenticeship. I have just finished my level 2 city and guilds plastering course which was for a year. Really want to further my skills as there is so much to know about plastering/rendering! I'm 27yrs old full driving licence an keen to learn! CV available and references also.

Thanks

Mark

The problem with an adult apprenticeship is you will need to pay more than you would a school leaver so not ideal for company's.

I have been told this but on the positives I am more mature more reliable and for myself I already have the basic skills in skimming, working with different backgrounds, putting up plasterboard, cornice work and roughcasting. I have paperwork that my lecturer printed out and it basically gives the benefits of employing an adult apprenticeship.

Most 16 year olds are knobs, atleast with older people you'll probably have a higher success rate of fnding someone reliable....like you said though comes at more of a cost moneywise.

I'm actually in a situation just now that I'm not sure what to do. My dad is retiring in August so I am in two minds whether to take some one on. But all the talk recently of apprentices has put me off to be honest. I think i'm going to try and find another one man band who I can team up with on the bigger jobs I can't do alone and hopefully he would do the same with me. Just trying to find someone who you can trust and keep the same standards is the problem

That's the problem, can't find anyone who I can trust or they come out plaster good for a week then leave some shocking jobs. Every year I try and at the end of the year it's always me and the lad who's been with me for 9 years.

@Markmorris88 your in a similar postions to where @Tommy5 was when he first joined this forum , he's now been with me almost 2years and he's flying mate so stay involved and keep refreshing your threads im sure theres someone on here who'll give you a chance.
And for what it's worth personally I'd take someone in your position over a school kid anyday of the week, good luck(y)

no probs thanks again
I took @Lodan out work experience for a few weeks off here.. Got to say I was a bit unsure how it would go but now I am glad we met up..last week or so he not been with me (which between me and you) has been a bit of a relief but the weird thing is I have kind of missed him now.

Hold on
s**t ...just got a text off him " are you busy next week ?"
Oh FFS
