Level 1 Diploma


This hands-on course will introduce you to the basics of bricklaying and will suit you if you’re keen to find out more about the construction industry and learn a specialist trade.

You’ll develop skills in cavity walling, basic bricklaying, setting out and building masonry structures.

You’ll also learn other technical and practical skills, problem solving, team working and communication, all vital for career progression.

We’re excited to be involved in the Advanced Construction Training (ACT) project, which aims to develop digital skills in construction across Cheshire.
