What do I learn?
Over the two years of the programme you learn the theory of brickwork and gain the practical skills and experience necessary to progress in this industry or related areas.
The elements of the course are:
• Level 2 Diploma in Brickwork
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Brickwork

You spend one day a week in college participating in classroom and practical-based sessions. The other four days are spent working in the workplace putting what you have learned into practice.
All aspects of training will be carried out in college. These will be taught both in the classroom and the workshops.
You will then take the skills you have learnt at college out to the workplace and will be expected to bring in work-based evidence and build a portfolio with the evidence you have collected in the workplace. An assessor will visit your work place to observe your working practices. All key skills will be delivered at college within your day release.
