Qualifications and Training
There are no formal requirements for qualifications but it helps to have GCSEs or equivalent such as standard grades in English and Maths at A*-C. The Foundation or Intermediate Welsh Baccalaureate is also useful.
Employers like people with on-site experience. If you don’t have any, it’s worth looking for work as a glazier's assistant or labourer. Once you are working, your employer may offer training and qualifications through day release to college, or via the On site Assessment and Training route (OSAT).
