Apprenticeships in Scotland
Apply for apprenticeships in Scotland
Formworkers make temporary structures out of wood or metal for use in moulding concrete.
There are no set qualifications to become a formworker but it helps to have Standard Grades/National 4 or 5s, GCSEs or or in Wales, the Welsh Baccalaureate. A good understanding of maths and technology is important because you have to work to precise measurements using wood and metal.
Employers often look for people with on-site experience. If you have not worked in construction before, you could start out as a labourer. Then your employer may train you as a formworker.
You can also do an apprenticeship in Wood Occupations SVQ/NVQ Level 1, 2 and 3.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may have done. Self-employed formworkers set their own pay rates.
