Property Maintenance Operative, Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
The primary role of a property maintenance Operative is to optimise property condition and quality and to ensure the building is kept in a safe working condition. Property maintenance operatives need to maintain a high level of quality, providing maximum satisfaction to customers, clients, guests and team.
They will understand the mechanism of buildings, including electrical, plumbing, brickwork, carpentry and safety systems and equipment. They will provide first and immediate response to fault finding, whilst maximising quality and ensuring cost effectiveness. They will ensure prevention of major damage that could result in extensive costs and minimise reactive intervention.
How will I be assessed?
You will undertake a final assessment when you have demonstrated the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of the role.
What could I do after this course?
The transferable skills you learn on this apprenticeship will enable you to progress to roles such as a technical specialist e.g. electrical or plumbing and supervisory and management roles e.g. facilities management, across a wide range of sectors.
You will need to be competent to at least Level 1 - preferably Level 2 - in English and maths. This is equivalent to grade 4 at GCSE. You will also need to be in relevant employment but we can help you find this.
