Employer's Benefit

Bricklaying is one of the traditional trades both in the UK and around the world - Sir Winston Churchill is known to have enjoyed laying bricks and building walls during his lifetime. Those studying bricklaying will learn a variety of skills to enable them to build, repair and maintain the country's housing stock. A Level 2 qualification is considered to be the industry standard. Obtaining this level can lead to a career as a bricklayer. This will further support the national skills shortage for Bricklayers allowing employers to grow and benefit from the additional skilled labor available.
