Course Details

  • If you have already completed the City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Brickwork and are looking to advance your bricklaying skills and abilities even further, then this Level 3 Diploma is the course for you.

    This vocational course is extremely hands-on and practical, and you’ll learn advanced skills in repairing and maintaining masonry structures, as well as constructing radial and battered brickwork. You’ll also explore how to carry out decorative and reinforced work on buildings, and how to construct fireplaces and chimneys.

    Throughout the course you’ll be developing your knowledge and expertise as a bricklayer to help you advance in your career, and will also have the opportunity to further your skills in English and maths.

  • You should ideally have previously completed a Level 2 qualification in Brickwork to enrol on this course, but we will take into account your previous experience too. You’ll be invited to take an initial assessment in English and maths and an interview with us, before we offer you a place on the course.

  • Throughout this course, you’ll complete a range of practical, hands-on assessments in the workshop to build up your individual portfolio. You’ll also take some exams covering health and safety, the principles of building, and questions relating to the trade area.

  • After completing this Diploma, you’ll have a range of advanced skills and knowledge to help you in your career as a professional bricklayer. You may also want to continue onto further, higher-level courses such as an HNC in Construction and the Built Environment with us here at The Manchester College.

    This will open up even more career opportunities in the construction industry. Link to Careers or Link to Careers 2
