It is also suitable for those who have relevant experience but do not have a relevant bricklaying qualification.

The Apprenticeship develops the skills and knowledge required for a successful career in the craft of bricklaying and focuses on health and safety, setting out masonry structures, moving, handling and the storage of materials, erecting masonry structures and productive working practices.

You will achieve a Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Trowel Occupations (Construction), and a Level 2 Diploma in Bricklaying. Unless exempt on entry, you will also achieve Level 1 Functional Skills qualifications in English and maths.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

You will learn through a combination of on- and off-the-job training. You will attend college on a day release basis during term time and spend the rest of your time earning and learning in the workplace. You will be assessed on a continuous basis through a combination of knowledge and practical assessment activities, including assessment of activities in the workplace.

The Apprenticeship has a minimum duration of 18 months. The typical duration for a new entrant to the industry is 24 months.

Your progress will be continuously monitored and supported by an Apprenticeship Officer.
