Fencing

“Installing and repairing a range of general and vehicle restraint fences”

The fencing apprenticeship deals with the construction and repair of fences. Fences can be simple or incredibly high tech, purely functional or decorative. They have a variety of purposes including: providing protection for people, buildings, animals, vehicles or goods; providing simple demarcation; public safety; and reducing sound levels. As an intermediate apprentice, you’ll be able to work in general fencing or vehicle restraint fencing, meaning you’ll learn to install fencing for a variety of clients in sectors such as security and agriculture, or install a range of barriers on England’s highways. If you opt for the advanced apprenticeship, you’ll also develop supervisory skills, including management, resource deployment, planning and organisation, health and safety, problem solving, setting up sites, managing the installation process, dealing with problems, and monitoring the quality of installations.
