Course overview

Are you are a practical, hands-on person, but don’t know which trade you want to do? You are not alone, which is why we developed this course to help people make the right decision! You will learn the fundamental practical skills needed in the construction industry, learn brickwork, plastering and joinery and give your chances of getting a job in construction a massive boost.

What you'll study

Brickwork, plastering and joinery are the three key areas of study with lots of fun, mini-projects to keep you moving forward in your career. You will build up a portfolio of evidence that you can show to employers to prove you have gained valuable trade skills and impress them at an interview. If you still don’t feel ready for working in construction after completing this course, then it is the perfect qualification to build on with further study as you specialise in a specific trade area.
