How does the Group Scheme work?
The group scheme employs apprentices and places them with a variety of employers (host employers).

  • To enable the apprentice to gain a range of experiences and skill, apprentices are rotated a number of times throughout the 4 years of the apprenticeship.
  • Type of work may include general plumbing and drainage, mechanical services, roofing and gasfitting in the commercial, industrial, domestic and servicing sectors.

What schooling is involved?
Master Plumbers' apprentices must first complete a training program that will provide basic skills and knowledge before starting 'on the job'. The training counts towards the "off the job training" required in the apprenticeship. For more information visit the PAV web site.
