V&D Interiors, a specialist drylining and exteriors contractor, have been running an in-house apprenticeship course to give up and coming plasterers a tangible qualification to further their careers in the trade.
V&D provide a 6-week course, on behalf of British Gypsum, twice a year where students will learn to plaster using our next level set up. With partition frames set up in our in-house facility, students can come in and get practical experience plastering with oversight from plastering guru Paul, who boasts over 40 years’ experience in construction.
At the end of the 6-week course graduates will gain a BG plastering qualification and certificate.
The course has been extremely successful so far with one of V&D’s students winning runner up at The Worshipful Company of Plasterers training awards in 2022.
In September, V&D will be running a Level 2 Plastering Apprenticeship, which is currently open for applications, the course will run for 24 months, with multiple modules covering all aspects of modern-day plastering.
The course is Shropshire’s first ever plastering apprenticeship and it’s all done on V&D’s training academy, as the company want to encourage and support people in the local area to gain qualifications and experience in a trade that needs workers.
Interested applicants can attend a taster day on 6th April to find out more information and experience first hand plastering to see if the course is right for them.
