My apprentice just finished his course . Went to local college 1 day a week for 2 years . You’ll need to register with citb to get grants . £500 a quarter and £3500 lump sum once course is complete and you send in his certification to citb. Also have to prove apprentice is employed and pay his holidays . It’s a ball ache but it’s rewarding if you put the effort in and jump through the hoops .

I always have an apprentice. They’re always there and don’t let you down like random subby’s. On good jobs they can be very profitable. Always the down sides though. Extra insurance, paying for holidays or days you’ve got no work. The current lad is a cracker. He’ll stay and I’ll maybe get another apprentice.

A good lad can save you two hours a day
