Course Information for Students

You’ll be able to demonstrate your experience and knowledge to an employer and will have the capacity to take on extra responsibility as you advance your career in construction. 

Offers of a place on the course are dependent on your qualifications and practical aptitude, and you need GCSE maths and English at grade D (3) or above. 

You will have an interview and initial assessment.  If you are successful, you will be allocated a place to study the practical and theoretical elements of bricklaying.  Parents and carers are welcome to attend the interview but not the initial assessment.

Practical and theoretical tests will be delivered throughout the programme of study.  Units will cover safe working practices, solid walling, contributing to setting out and several other bricklaying skills.

You will learn on-site

You will need to supply your own safety footwear.  A small charge may be made for any other Personal Protective Equipment needed to complete the course.

Assessment is via observation of practical work.  You may be required to undertake real trade projects on which you will also be assessed.  Your maths and English skills will be assessed through a controlled assessment or final exam.

Further study

You can progress to the Advanced Diploma in Bricklaying as a full-time learner. If you continue your studies, you will develop your literacy and numeracy skills further.

Careers

There is the potential to develop your skills further on an apprenticeship or to go into employment in various trowel occupations in the construction industry.
