Plumbing Apprenticeship (Scotland)

SNIPEF Training Services Ltd

SNIPEF Training Services Ltd acts as the Managing Agent & Training Provider for the Modern Apprenticeship in Domestic Plumbing and Heating in Scotland and obtains funding from the Government (Skills Development Scotland).

Whilst there is no restriction for entry to the Modern Apprenticeship in Domestic Plumbing, the Government does have age-related funding bands. Employers can enquire about funding for an apprentice with SNIPEF Training Services Ltd here.

Employers Looking For An Apprentice

You can contact a local Regional Training Officer from SNIPEF Training Services Ltd here to enquire whether they are aware of any individuals who are looking to start an apprenticeship or who are looking for an employer in order to complete their apprenticeship (having been made redundant).

SNIPEF Training Services Ltd will be able to advise if you are eligible to apply for additional funding in the form of an adoption grant for recruiting a redundant apprentice.

If you have the capacity to employ an individual who needs to complete their apprenticeship, Regional Training Officers may have valuable 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year apprentices located near you who are worthy of consideration for employment.

Many 4th year apprentices have completed their college training including ACS Gas and can bring this and their work experience to your business.



Office Hours – 8am-4pm (3:30pm Friday)

Please provide your national insurance number or SNIJIB card number when contacting the SNIJIB.
