    – Foundation in Construction and the Built Environment qualification at Level 2

Additional information:

You will need to be aged 16 and over for your employer to benefit from support funding.  If you are 19 or older, your employer may need to put some of their own money towards your studies.

You will need to have been a UK resident for the previous three years, or a national of any European Union (EU) country or European Economic Area (EEA) for the previous three years. This is unless you have an immigration status which exempts you from the three-year residency requirement. Contact JTL for more information about this.

You can apply for an apprenticeship while you’re still in education, but you need to have left before you can start with us. As a rule of thumb, you must have left compulsory education after the last Friday in June of the academic year in which you are applying.

You will need an employer before you can start an apprenticeship, although you can apply before you’ve arranged one.

If you are colour-blind then you will be unable to apply for an electrical apprenticeship due to health and safety reasons.
