The Level 2 Technical Certificate in Bricklaying is aimed at learners that are looking to start a career in the construction industry as a bricklayer. Learners could progress into employment as a bricklayer, apprenticeships and further education. This course is practical based with classroom theory sessions – making sure you are able to put the knowledge behind the technique.

  Key Info

Course Content:

  • Principles of construction
  • Building cavity walls
  • Building solid walls and piers
  • Constructing basic arches
  • Setting out buildings

Entry to this course requires a Level 1 qualification in Bricklaying as well as GCSE Maths and English at a grade 2.

Please note that you will be required to wear safety boots with steel toe caps and hi-vis vest when working in the College workshops. Prior to enrolment on the course, please make sure you have access to these resources.

You will be assessed by a theory exam and a synoptic practical assessment.

Your course may include work experience or a work placement that could lead to the offer of a part-time or casual work, or you might work outside of your studies. Our students benefit from local site visits and trips to construction companies, such as our award-winning local partner Priestley Construction.

Successful completion of your course can lead to further study, apprenticeships or you may progress into employment. A Carpenter/Joiner has the potential to earn anywhere between £12K to £40K per year.


If you are aged 19+ and studying a Further Education Course at Bradford College, you may have to pay course fees. Course fees are dependent on the number of hours and which course is being taken.
