Become an essential part of the construction industry. Bricklayers are responsible for setting out buildings using blocks, bricks and mortar in accordance with approved construction plans. Bricklayers also build and repair walls, chimney stacks, tunnel linings and decorative work such as archways. They might also refurbish brickwork and masonry on restoration projects.
To work on a construction site you need to have a Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) card, which covers essential health and safety, however if you wish to earn more than a labourer, gaining a technical skills qualification will provide you with a great start to a career. You can train full-time with us for up to three years with the option to move in to an apprenticeship at any time. We also offer a Level 1 qualification to get you started if you do not meet these entry requirements.
