If you have no experience then the best option for you ideally is to take an Introduction to Bricklaying Course. This is obviously a great way to start if you literally have no experience as it will give you the foundation, and the basic understanding of the trade.

Don't worry about being judged or coming into our training centre with no clue about bricklaying, that is why we are here! We get students all the time taking Introductory classes in all diffrent trades, our instructors are friendly, polite and will help you to grasp the basics the best they can!


Some Experience?


There are multiple options for people with some experience in this trade, the opportunity to obtain a City & Guilds certificate in bricklaying is a good start. This accredited 3-week basic bricklaying qualification is an excellent start for anyone looking to begin training as a Bricklayer if that is all you are looking for then the City & Guilds Bricklaying Course is for you!

However, if you want to take bricklaying seriously and would like to take a full-time course that will fully prepare you to become a professional once leaving our training centre. Then your best option is to take a 10-week Level 2 Bricklaying Diploma.

During this 10-week period you'll learn: 

  • Building solid walling, isolated and attached piers
  • Interpreting working drawings to set out masonry structures
  • Construct cavity walling forming masonry structures
