Qualifications & Training
There are no formal construction qualifications required to become a bedroom fitter, though it is generally advisable to obtain GCSEs in mathematics and English at a grade 4 (C) or above. Some bedroom fitters will get into the job through completing a construction apprenticeship while others may choose to complete an installation course at college. However, it is important to note that many employers like you to have some construction site experience before taking you on. In Scotland, there are jobs available in this occupation, however, there is currently no funded modern apprenticeship route to entry.
