What I would highlight After leaving school I knew I wanted to pursue a career in bricklaying. I did a one day a week placement from Ossett Academy in year 10 and 11 on the Step Up programme at Wakefield College. It involved all aspects of construction and bricklaying was the one for me. When I passed that, I then applied for Wakefield College, got accepted and did a year of full time bricklaying. I passed this course and that’s what made it clear that I wanted to do this full time as a job. My tutor was so helpful throughout the whole course and helped me apply for WDH as a bricklaying apprentice. I applied once and didn’t get the job, but I pushed forward and applied again and I was successful. Currently I’m in my second year of my apprenticeship going into my last year and I wouldn’t change it! I love the whole thing, it’s great. This is just the beginning of my career and there’s loads more to come.

What you will study

In classroom sessions you will look at Construction technology to gain an insight not only into the role of a bricklayer but also of the whole construction process. You will study Health & Safety to ensure that your working practices are safe. You will also start to learn how to read and produce drawings. In the workshops you will develop the practical skills required in the construction of brickwork including basic blocklaying and bricklaying skills, and basic cavity walling.

Maths and English are key elements of any full-time programme of study in College. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4) in these subjects, you will need to attend sessions allocated on your timetable. These are varied and designed to cater for all ability levels. You will receive advice and guidance regarding the correct level for you.

Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.
