Pitched roofing course
Specialist Applied-Skills Programme (SAP) NVQ Level 2
A range of apprenticeship roof training courses have been developed to meet the needs of both apprentices and employers in the building and construction sectors.
The Specialist Applied-Skills Programme (SAP) is an 18-month apprenticeship scheme leading to an NVQ Level 2 in Roof Slating & Tiling and Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) recognition following successfully completion of a health and safety test.
The course comprises of roof training modules delivered through a combination of formal off-the-job training sessions (23 days) and supervised on-site training with an employer where the final end assessment will be carried out by an industry-approved Assessor.
The roof training content within the modules will provide the necessary skills and knowledge required to work towards achieving the NVQ Level 2 qualification over a period not exceeding 18 months.
The training course enables access to a full CITB-ConstructionSkills grant for eligible employers through ConstructionSkills.
