The two-year Specialist Apprenticeship Programme (SAP) will be based at the LRWA Training Centre at BriggsAmasco in Birmingham. It will combine classroom and workshop sessions with on-site instruction to help candidates obtain an NVQ Level 2 qualification – which in turn will enable them to get a CSCS card.

“Training and development has always been a crucial part of our company ethos,” said Dave Maginnis, BriggsAmasco Managing Director. “Our dedicated training centre in Birmingham offers up to date classroom facilities and training rigs for hands on learning, and will provide a fantastic base for the new LRWA apprenticeship scheme.”

Launched in January 2012, the course has proven so popular with its first group of apprentices that the LRWA is looking for a second intake to begin training in September 2012. With exceptional training facilities and instruction by LRWA instructors, the course gives candidates the perfect start in the industry.

Utilising its facilities for the apprenticeship scheme, BriggsAmasco has once again demonstrated its unrivalled commitment to training and development which recently saw the company scoop the Exceptional Contribution to Training Award at the 2012 Roofing Awards.
