Formworker apprenticeship

Repair, install and manage all stages of the formwork and falsework processes

Formwork is used to form concrete structures across the entire infrastructure, from constructing roads, rail, bridges and underground structures to high-rise concrete buildings. A formworker contributes to the construction of projects through the preparation, installation and quality management of all stages of the formwork and falsework process. As an apprentice, you’ll train in the preparation of falsework that provides temporary support structures for forms, and undertake formwork. This includes producing panels and fittings that mould to form a desired shape with concrete, such as slabs, support beams, columns and walls. You’ll be able to work in the entire envelope of the construction industry. The skills you’ll gain through this formworker apprenticeship can be used worldwide and can also be a stepping stone for supervisory and management roles.
