There has never been a better time to embark on a career in bricklaying. The UK construction industry will need a total of 72,760 bricklaying roles to meet demand between 2017 - 2021, according to the latest construction skills network research (LMI).

And there is no better place to learn than at Highbury Northarbour Centre, which is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the South East, with industry standard workshops and realistic working environments.

During the course you will be encouraged to use your skills to make a contribution to the local community. For example, students have recently been building a bandstand at Merchistoun Hall, home of Horndean Community Centre, gaining valuable on-site experience.

We embed maths and English in all our lessons and depending on your current levels, you will have the chance to either improve your GCSE grades or gain valuable Functional Skills qualifications if required.
