What the new Demolition Operative Apprenticeship Standard means for the wider industry.

Following more than a year of behind-the-scenes consultation, a Demolition Operative apprenticeship standard has been uploaded onto the Institute for Apprenticeships.

The apprenticeship standard was developed by a trailblazer group comprising 10 UK demolition contractors including Armac Group, Cantillon, Rye Demolition, Squibb Group and – most notably – Keltbray and Erith Contractors.

In this exclusive interview, Erith training director Robert Williams explains how the standard was developed and what it means for UK demolition contractors.
