What is a JTL apprenticeship?

JTL apprenticeships helps those aged 16 and over:- 

  • become qualified craft people
  • gain a qualification that’s recognised around the world
  • build knowledge and skills on the job
  • earn while they learn.

We work with you and our partner colleges to train skilled workers who bring value to your business – and the building services engineering sector.

It's a four-part programme that gives young people the skills, knowledge and best industry practice. At college, they earn their technical certificate and Functional (Essential) skills. On site, they work towards their NVQ – in a way that will benefit your company.

Apprentices who qualify gain NVQ Level 2 or 3 for PMES, the equivalent of two A-levels. Both the industry and Government will recognise your apprentice as fully qualified in the trade.

Your training officer looks after everything, from liaising with the college, mentoring your apprentice and checking on and assessing their progress.

Apprentices go on to enjoy careers in these trades:

  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Heating and ventilating
  • Engineering maintenance

Our high-quality, work-based training programmes take up to four years to complete. They are funded by the Government.
