Apprenticeships in Scotland
Apply for apprenticeships in Scotland
Land drilling operatives investigate the ground on a construction site before drilling holes into it.
There are no set qualifications to be a land drilling operative but it helps to have Standard Grades/National 4 or 5s, GCSEs at 9-4 (A*-C) in maths and English, or equivalent such the Welsh Baccalaureate because this helps with the calculations you do in the job.
A good way to start your career is to do an apprenticeship at a local company. The land drilling apprenticeship combines learning in college with supervised on-the-job training. This leads to SVQ/NVQ assessment to qualify you as a lead driller. To find an apprenticeship visit Skills Development Scotland , the Government's website or Careers Wales.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do.
