Glaziers measure, install and replace different types of glass in all kinds of buildings and structures.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do. Self-employed glaziers set their own pay rate.
There are no formal requirements for qualifications but it helps to have GCSEs or equivalent such as standard grades in English and Maths at 9-4 (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).
