What will I learn

Our level 3 course builds on knowledge and skills developed at level 1 and 2 where you will learn about health and safety in the construction industry, how to complete complex repairs and maintenance of masonry and construct radial and battered brickwork. You will also develop knowledge and skills of constructing fire places and chimneys and how to organise, plan and price construction work which are a great set of skills if you are looking to become self-employed.

How will I learn

The course covers both practical and theoretical content. You will be assessed by online unit tests at the end of each module. The course is very practical based and the focus will be on learning and practising in the workshop.

What's next

On completion of this course you could enter employment as a bricklayer or progress on to our construction related higher education courses with the view of moving into site management.
