Course Overview

Qualify as a bricklayer with the Level 2 Brickwork course. As a fully trained bricklayer you could work on housing sites, city developments, domestic extensions and conservatories, new work, conversions or repairs. You might want the security of site work or you could have what it takes to start your own business. Either way, this course allows you to develop skills in all aspects of brickwork, including how to read building drawings, technical drawing, foundations, calculating materials and estimating. You also have the option of progressing onto an apprenticeship or continuing your studies in order to enter the area of construction management.

Entry Requirements

You will need to have completed the Level 1 Bricklaying or have relevant industry experience instead.

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.
