Bricklaying – Level 2 Diploma


The Level 2 Diploma in Bricklaying is a hands-on course that will train you to establish yourself with the skills and insight to become a good bricklayer ready for entry level work in the workplace.

You will learn the fundamentals of bricklaying and blockwork and apply more skilled techniques, such as: building solid walling with isolated and attached piers, producing joint finishes, and constructing cavity walling to form masonry structures.

Alongside the development of your technical skills you will learn about health, safety and environmental issues faced on construction sites, and how to communicate with others on the job.


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

The structure of our programmes follows clear educational aims that are expected from the awarding bodies. These are all outlined in the programme specifications which include further details such as the learning outcomes.


The following sets out some of the most common entry requirements. However, each application is reviewed on its individual strengths and merits.

You may have previously completed the Level 1 Diploma in Bricklaying, but this is not a formal requirement.

GCSEs – If you have not already studied a level one course, you should have achieved GCSE (or equivalent) Maths and English with at least a grade 4 in either; and grade 3 in the other to be able to join this course.

A positive attitude, enthusiasm towards learning and good attendance is important.
