This course will help you to develop various skills and techniques to allow you to build brickwork and blockwork of all shapes and sizes. You will learn how to set walls and buildings following instructions from foremen and architects.  Bricklayers are outdoor workers who work both at height and below ground level. The work is physical so a good level of fitness is an advantage – however, the modern construction industry’s safety regulations and lightweight materials mean that most people can undertake the work of a bricklayer.
