Practical Vs Theory
Bricklayers lay bricks, blocks and other types of building components in mortar to construct and repair walls, foundations, partitions, arches and other structures e.g chimney stacks. They might also refurbish brickwork and masonry on restoration projects. The range of sites and projects that bricklayers will work on include large commercial developments, new builds in housing alterations, extensions and restorations. A bricklayer may work one-on-one or on larger jobs where their bricklaying group may work on a particular section of a building alongside other bricklaying groups as well as other trades.
Studying bricklaying at New College Stamford has broadened my knowledge and opportunities for me to progress to a successful career in building industry.
