NETA - Celebrating Scaffolding SuccessA team of apprentices has been hitting new heights after proving they’ve got what it takes to work in the scaffolding trade.

Eight learners picked up Level 2 qualifications in Scaffolding, Accessing and Rigging Occupations, after completing the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) Scaffolding Apprenticeship delivered in partnership with NETA.

“The group has worked really hard to successfully complete what can be a demanding apprenticeship,” said NETA’S Scaffolding Co-ordinator, Michael Allan.

Starting his career as a scaffolding apprentice himself, Michael knows how challenging learning on the job can be. That’s why at NETA he says, they work closely with all of their apprentices to provide a high level of expertise and support.

Successfully completing the two-year apprenticeship the squad of eight, who are working with a range of different construction companies, received their Construction Industry Scaffolders’ Record Scheme (CISRS) registration card.

With three more cohorts of scaffolding apprentices currently undergoing training at NETA the upcoming groups all hope to now replicate the team’s success.

Michael said: “We try to instil into all of our apprentices that this is a great opportunity to achieve something and develop the skills to be able to really do something with their lives. It makes you feel proud to then see them go on to succeed.”
