Property Maintenance Operative (Apprenticeship Level 2)


The primary role of a Property Maintenance Operative is to optimise property condition and quality and to ensure the building is kept in a safe working condition. Property Maintenance Operatives need to maintain a high level of quality, providing maximum satisfaction to customers, clients, guests and team. They will understand the mechanism of buildings including electrical, plumbing, brickwork, carpentry and safety systems and equipment. They will provide first and immediate response to fault finding, whilst maximising quality and ensuring cost effectiveness. They will ensure prevention of major damage that could result in extensive costs and minimise reactive intervention.

Entry Requirements

Individual employers will set their selection criteria. However, you will need to have the ability achieve at least level 1 English and maths or ideally level 2, which is equivalent to grade C/4 GCSE.

Functional Skills

Apprentices will be required to have or achieve level 1 English and maths prior to completion of their Apprenticeship and taken the exam fro level 2 English and maths. If level 2 has already been achieved then development of further English and maths skills will continue for the whole of the apprenticeship.


12- 15 months.


Completing this apprenticeship programme with its transferable skills will enable progression into roles such as a Technical Specialist e.g. Electrical or Plumbing and Supervisory and Management roles e.g. Facilities Management, across a wide range of sectors.


Levy paying employers may fund apprentices on this programme from their Apprenticeship Account and non-levy paying SMEs through the co-funded option. There may be a small fee for some SME’s.

End Assessment

Apprentices will be entered for the final assessment when the employer, in consultation with the training provider, considers the apprentice has demonstrated the skills, knowledge/understanding and behaviours required of a competent Property Maintenance Operative (this can form part of the portfolio of evidence/workbook - this would be based on a continuous review of the apprentice). This would involve learning/assessment against the Technical Specification (content), with the employer and training provider regularly discussing the apprentice’s performance and progress.
