Course Overview

The glass related occupations can involve the manufacture of flat glass, double glazed units or UPVC/aluminium frames and structures. It can also cover the installation of aluminium or UPVC frames and structures as well as glazing. There is also an option available for glass related warehousing and distribution. The occupation will involve either working in a factory or on construction sites. The installation and glazing qualifications will include working at height and outside. The occupation can involve using CNC machinery to shape, drill and grind glass and process frame parts working from either computer fobs or technical drawings.

The Glazing Installation/Maintenance (broken glass repair/site glazing) Apprenticeship is connected closely with the construction industries and would be based around working on sites or in factories either within local areas or maybe travelling to other areas. Glazing can take on two forms, either site glazing of large construction projects or domestic glazing, repairing broken windows and doors at domestic properties.
