Structural steelwork fabricator apprenticeship

Produce fabricated structural components to the highest standards

A structural steelwork fabricator produces fabricated structural components to the highest standards in order to ensure that the finished products function correctly, as they will be on display as part of significant structures. During the structural steelwork fabricator apprenticeship, you’ll train in the identification of relevant steelwork sections and plate that are required to complete a fabricated component (steelwork that is cut, drilled and has welded or bolted attachments) and the relevant tools and equipment that are required to complete a bolted connection or a tack welded joint for a complex or shaped fabricated component. This will include the knowledge and understanding of material drawings and component lists. The use of the appropriate tools and equipment requires skills to be developed to ensure they are used safely and accurately to the company specific standards, minimising any waste of product or production time.
