Your Guide to a Career in Scaffolding

By on Nov 26, 2019 in Blog, Scaffolding |

Here at Network Scaffold, we understand the importance of having the right qualifications before starting a career in scaffolding.

You can begin at entry level as a scaffolding labourer or trainee without formal qualifications, and through on-going training and industry recognised courses carve a career out within the industry.
The UK scaffolding sector is made up of thousands of companies of all shapes and sizes. Network Scaffold understands the importance of developing younger staff, which is the reason we are part of the Scaffolding Association, which also helps us to constantly improve our practice to be the best in the industry. With safety in mind, we are also accredited by Safety Schemes in Procurement and recognised as a SMAS Worksafe Contractor.

Training Tips for Budding Scaffolders

If you are considering a career in scaffolding, here are some essential tips to help you succeed and reach your full potential.

Choose the right course and training provider – When deciding which course to enrol onto, you need to make sure the training you will receive is of the highest standard and leads to recognised and relevant qualifications. Scaffolding apprenticeships aren’t age-restricted, meaning anyone can start a course if they choose to. Scaffolding places a large emphasis on English and Mathematics, so having existing qualifications in these areas is also beneficial.
Hard Work Pays Off – Pay attention at all times during your training, turn up to training prepared and on time and always ask questions about things you don’t understand and always stay motivated.
Combine Work Experience with Training – There is no substitute for real on-the-job experience, so being able to combine training qualifications with working experience will help you get a better understanding of what you are being taught and how it applies to different parts of the job.
