About the apprenticeship 

General construction operatives have a wide range of skills and are needed right across a building site, so it’s no surprise they are in demand. They work alongside skilled tradespeople, helping to build everything from a new home to a motorway flyover.

Operatives are involved in projects from start to finish and follow all the safety procedures in place to prevent anyone being hurt or injured.

Typical duties include:

  • Mixing and pouring concrete to make foundations, beams or floors
  • Mark out the area for the site using string lines strung between stakes, and put up huts, ladders, barriers and safety signs
  • Laying drainage pipes, pavements and manhole covers
  • Operating hand machinery such as drills, pumps and compressors.

During the apprenticeship you will learn all aspects of the job over a 2-3 year period; you must be committed to working towards NVQ Level 2 in General construction operations – plant operation or plant maintenance.
