Metro Rod are a leading provider of commercial drainage. We have partnered with ITOL to create an all new apprenticeship scheme unique to the drainage industry. 

An industry first, it focuses solely on drainage & plumbing, and has been built exclusively for Metro Rod and accredited by The Institute of Training & Occupational Learning (ITOL). The programme consists of 37 internal courses and 12 external courses to make it the most comprehensive apprenticeship within the drainage industry.

Starting out as an apprentice you have the opportunity to grow yourself into a senior drainage engineer, a manager or even a business owner. There are two routes you can follow:
