This City & Guilds accredited level 2 Diploma is a real mix of practical and theory-based assessments; a great opportunity for those of you looking to come straight in at level 2. This course is ideal for those of you who already have a good understanding of the construction industry, specifically plastering, and who want to build on that further.
What You’ll Learn
This level 2 Diploma from City and Guilds 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. 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 be trained over a 10-week period (50 days) and the training will be predominantly practical. The intention for us is not just to get you to the point of being able to pass assessments; it’s to ensure that the skills you achieve here are transferrable to industry.
This course will require a fair bit of home study commitment from you as there are also theory-based assessments required in order to complete this course and you will be provided with resources to help you undertake revision in order to complete these assessments. This will be sent to you ahead of you attending the centre and you will need to complete the work required for this before you attend the centre for the practical aspects.
Courses Open To You After
The next steps from this level 2 Diploma should be NVQ (once you have secured relevant work).
Able Skills has been providing plastering training for a number of years now and our centre has grown beyond recognition. Alongside the plastering courses we also offer rendering courses.
