Guided by our expert lectueres you will advance your knowledge of bricklaying and available technology in construction. Through practical and theoretical based-learning you will develop your knowledge of solid walling, as well as the proper application of thin joints, setting out and cavity walling.
Building on the knowledge and skills you developed at Level 1 (or alternative prior experience) you will explore in more detail the two ‘core units’ increasing your understanding of your responsibilities to maintain health, safety and welfare in construction settings. You will also extend your understanding of other trades and your ability to work alongside them with more detailed study of the principles of building construction, information and communication.
The specialist units you will undertake include cavity walling, at this level incorporating openings and decorative features. You will construct solid walls, isolated and attached piers, copings and cappings and you will set out more complex buildings using profiles and mechanical levelling devices to transfer horizontal measurements across a building project.
