Floor Layers are trained in sub-floor preparations and laying floor coverings.
There are no formal qualification requirements to begin a career as a Floor Layer. However, GCSE grades A* - C in English/Welsh and Maths are highly beneficial. Maths skills are particularly important for measuring floor areas and calculating material requirements with minimal wastage.
There are several courses that enable you to enter a career in Floor Laying:
Most Floor Layers start out by joining a company as an apprentice and training on the job. Construction Apprentices in England and Wales will work towards an NVQ Level 2 or 3 in Floorcovering.
For Resin Flooring, there are three Specialist Apprenticeship Programmes delivered by FeRFA, leading to an NVQ Level 2 Diploma.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do. Self-employed floor layers set their own pay rates.
* Salaries have been collected from multiple industry sources and have been updated as of 2019
