How You’ll Learn
This course is a mix of theory and practical and whilst the emphasis is on practical skills, there is a great deal of knowledge that you will have to have in order to be sure of getting through the assessments that have been put in place by City and Guilds. Whilst we will provide you with learning resources which support the course, we do also highly recommend that you take every opportunity to do your own additional research on the various tasks that you will be facing. You can never learn enough and the more information you have available to you, the better prepared for the tiling industry you will be.
