Byrne Bros. launched its Formwork Apprenticeship Scheme in partnership with the National Construction College in 2013.

Our award winning scheme has been running since 2013, annually recruiting up to 13 apprentices to enrol on an NVQ level 2 in Formwork. Our Formwork Apprentices attend the Norfolk based CITB National Construction College (NCC) for their residential educational classroom training. A total of 18 weeks completed in 2 weekly periods over 18 months. 

Our apprenticeship scheme runs for two years, and provides apprentices with the opportunity to work on prestigious London landmarks. Whilst on-site, apprentices work closely with a supervisor, picking up vital knowledge and learning from their expertise. 

In addition to the basic NVQ framework and Apprenticeship Standard, they receive further training, such as manual handling, behavioural safety and the use of power tools.
