Bricklaying – Level 1 Diploma


The Level 1 Diploma in Bricklaying is a great place for you to start if you want to study a practical, hands-on course and would like to pursue a trade working with bricks and mortar. The course is a great introduction to the construction sector and has a specific focus on bricklaying.

We have a spacious and equipped workshop for you to learn how to complete blocklaying, bricklaying and cavity walling activities. You will learn how to use the tools and materials, allowing you to develop your skills in building straight brick walls, return internal and external corners and junctions.

The course has a practical focus and is complemented with theoretical information, which includes learning how to interpret drawings and specifications, calculate area and linear measurements, and ensuring you meet health and safety requirements.


  • Our bespoke stand-alone building on the college campus includes a spacious brick workshop.
