Plastering is a core function within the construction sector, particularly the house building and refurbishment sectors. The Government has a target to build significantly more new homes over the coming years and therefore the demand for plasterers has never been higher. You will study different techniques for indoor plastering as well as learning the skills to fix angle beads, cut and fix plasterboard, mould cornices and conserve and restore old plasterwork to its original condition. This Apprenticeship allows you to specialise in either solid or fibrous plasterwork after completion of the core learning.
