Apprenticeships in Scotland
Apply for apprenticeships in Scotland
The plasterer is indispensable to most building sites – making walls and ceilings smooth and ready for decorating.
Ade Danson is a director of Lime Plasterers Ltd.
There are no set qualifications to become a plasterer, but employers usually expect four GCSEs grades 9-4 (A* - C), or the Scottish or Welsh equivalent.
A common way into plastering is through an apprenticeship scheme with a plastering firm. The range of apprenticeships available in your area will depend on the local jobs market and the types of skills employers need from their workers.
If you cannot get on to an apprenticeship, there are college courses where you can study a qualification such as Level 1,2 & 3 Diploma in Plastering.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do. Self-employed plasterers set their own pay rates.
