Unidrain team.” Wickes has launched a new apprenticeship scheme for installers

February 2021

The home-improvement retailer highlighted concerns that the current generation of installers that is getting older and that changes in EU legislation may have an impact on the availability of tradespeople.

After a successful pilot, the apprenticeship scheme proper started on 25th January. Wickes is fully funding 48 apprentice places during 2021 and they will be part of the company’s Approved Installer Network. The company says that the scheme is open to anyone, not just young adults.

During their 18 months on the scheme, apprentices will spend 80% of their time on-site with an installer. The rest will be formal training.
