What You’ll Learn

To start, you will learn a variety of plastering aspects which lead to achievement of the level 2 Plastering Diploma, certificated by City and Guilds. This is an excellent opportunity for those of you looking at a change of career to become Plasterers.

You will be trained and assessed to achieve the following units:

  • Health, safety and welfare in construction
  • Principles of building construction, information and communication
  • Apply plastering materials to interiors
  • Fix dry lining and plasterboards to interiors
  • Laying sand and cement screeds
  • Applying plastering materials to external backgrounds

The course will teach both internal and external plastering and you will learn about preparation as well as application.

Following this aspect of the package, you will then move on to training for achievement of NVQ. This will provide additional ‘reality’ training and ensure that you are ready for a real working environment and have the opportunity to achieve NVQ level 2. You will be registered with Construction Skills to show that you are working towards NVQ and this will help you generate a CSCS card should you opt to sit a Health and Safety test.

This is a very in depth course and the aim is to get you to a stage whereby you can competently enter the industry and start earning an income as a Plasterer.

How You’ll Learn

You will learn by practical training, demonstration and assessment. The instructors will explain in detail the processes required to undertake the various plastering aspects detailed within the Diploma – the learning will be underpinned by the assessments that you will be undertaking.

In addition, there will be a requirement for you to complete some ‘home-learning’ in order to help you with the theory elements within this course. Able Skills will provide you with plenty of support material and guidance to help with this aspect.
