Brickwork also known as the 'trowel trades', gives you the option to work for employers or to start up your own business.

Our courses teach you the basics, help develop your portfolio and improve your employability, and they let you learn in industry-standard workshop facilities.

Study the trowel trades with us and progress towards nationally recognised NVQ awards, based on evidence of your work in the trade.

Where it can lead to

There are number of routes you can take following successful completion of a course. Further study can include Higher Education courses or a Higher Apprenticeship where you will expand your skills through study whilst earning a wage. Or you may choose to move directly into employment.
