Highways Maintenance Skilled Operative Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship

Overview

Our Highways Maintenance Apprenticeship is a structured and immersive training programme that combines classroom learning with practical, on-the-job experience. The role of a Highways Maintenance Operative is to maintain the highways infrastructure providing vital maintenance and safety services that benefit local communities.

Typical tasks are carrying out pothole repairs, preventive maintenance, and traffic management to name a few. So if you enjoy working outdoors, being part of a hard-working team and would like a meaningful job where your contribution adds value to people’s surroundings, an apprenticeship is an excellent way to embark on this exciting career path.

Apprenticeship

Programme

The Highways Maintenance Apprenticeship Programme typically spans 18 months and includes a combination of classroom learning and on-the-job training. Topics covered include road maintenance techniques, equipment operation, winter maintenance, and environmental sustainability procedures.

On completion of the training and assessment of all the skills required the apprentices will move to what they call Gateway. This is where the employer confirms competency and apprentices are ready to take the end point assessment.

The end point assessment consists of a knowledge test which is graded fail, pass or distinction. The practical test will be assessed whilst carrying out one of the following 3 activities: laying bitumen, laying kerbs, concrete or modular paving. Following the practical task, the apprentice will be asked questions to assess knowledge, skills and behaviours not demonstrated through the practical task.

Upon successful completion, apprentices will gain a Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Highways Maintenance General Operative enabling a Skilled Operative CSCS Card to be obtained.
