Why Choose the Metro Rod Apprenticeship Scheme?
The Apprenticeship in Drainage Inspection Maintenance and Repair, has been designed specifically for Metro Rod.
An industry first, it focuses solely on drainage & plumbing, and has been built exclusively for Metro Rod and accredited by The Institute of Training & Occupational Learning (ITOL). The programme consists of 37 internal courses and 12 external courses to make it the most comprehensive apprenticeship within the drainage industry.
This bespoke programme means that we do not depend on colleges for training input. This brings two big advantages for your career development:
1) Your training and development will be individually tailored to make you a “multi skilled drainage specialist”. You will be mentored by expert drainage technicians and business owners with years of experience.
2) Your training and development take place while you are in the work-place and dealing with “live” problems – meaning you earn money as you learn.
The apprenticeship has been designed to provide a structured learning programme that will give you the necessary skills to become a successful and professional member of the Metro Rod community.
You will have a clearly defined start to your career path which not only gives job satisfaction but also develops you for greater responsibility and personal growth.
Starting out as an apprentice you have the opportunity to grow yourself into a senior drainage engineer, a manager or even a business owner. There are two routes you can follow:
