Type of Apprenticeship
Tilers are in the business of covering surfaces with tiles, and are employed across household jobs as one of the finishing touches to certain rooms, but especially kitchens and bathrooms, as well as in big construction projects and shops.
There’s also specialist work doing things like swimming pools, or restoring mosaics to their former glory, and outdoor tiles in gardens are becoming more and more common. You’ll need to have a mind that works in a design sense, as well as a practical nature, if you’re to succeed in the role.
