SNIPEF was the first UK construction trade association to set up its own dedicated managing agency in 1983. Over these 40 years, SNIPEF Training Services has supported thousands of apprentices to complete their training to become qualified plumbers.
The only industry approved training programme for plumbing apprenticeships in Scotland is the SNIJIB Modern Apprenticeship in Plumbing and Heating programme. This programme is managed by SNIPEF Training Services Ltd, the plumbing industry's training provider. The terms and conditions of the programme aim to regulate the entry, conditions of service, training and education of apprentices in the plumbing industry and also to ensure that apprentices are trained to the standards set by the SNIJIB and the National Occupational Standards (NOS).
In addition to our years of experience, the benefits of using SNIPEF Training Services include:
The aim of SNIPEF Training Services Ltd is to provide high-quality managing services to employers who wish to train young persons or adults as Modern Apprenticeship in Plumbing and Heating, under the plumbing industry apprentice programme.
SNIPEF is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among its workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. We are committed to the principle of Equal Opportunity in employment.
There are a number of organisations involved in the development, control and delivery of plumbing apprenticeships. We list these organisations below.
