Bricklaying (Level 3 City & Guilds Diploma) - Full-time

Construction12

Course outline

This course is perfect if you want to take your brickwork skills to an advanced level, have a good eye for detail and wish to progress into a supervisory role, or perhaps to go it alone as a self-employed builder.

You’ll learn about the complex setting out options of brick and block work, advanced trowel skills, decorative brickwork, maintaining masonry structures, associated construction skills, and about the areas of responsibility involved in a supervisory or site management role.

You can expect to be carrying out workshop activities, working on your own and in a group to produce pieces of work using hand tools and the latest industry-standard equipment.

You’ll also have some classroom-based lessons to learn about brickwork theory, as well as the various regulations and processes governing health and safety practices that are expected within the construction industry.
