Apprenticeships in Scotland
Apply for apprenticeships in Scotland
Tunnelling operatives build the underground tunnels needed for services such as rail lines and water works.
There are no set qualifications for becoming a tunnelling operative, but it helps to have GCSEs or Standard Grades in Maths and English or their equivalents such as BTEC, Welsh Baccalaureate, WJEC in Construction or Standard Grades/Scottish National 4 or 5s.
Employers may be more interested in whether you have onsite experience as a labourer before moving you on to becoming qualified in tunnelling through an apprenticeship or college course.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered status.
