Flying Start Logo

The construction industry contributes to a large slice of the UK economy covering a range of domestic and commercial projects. We are delighted to be welcoming you to study bricklaying with Highbury College.

Our Level 1 course offers students an opportunity to develop the necessary practical hand skills and the basic knowledge and understanding of how to set out basic masonry structures using measurements, which is essential for a career as a bricklayer. Students will also develop their knowledge and appreciation of health & safety in the construction industry, along with the knowledge of how the many different materials and components are used in the building industry.

Our qualifications are very hands-on with most of the teaching and learning taking place in a practical environment.

At the end of our Level 1 course, students will be prepared to move on to the level 2 full-time course or an apprenticeship, working towards a career as a qualified bricklayer. In addition, you can also access the Library, Study Centre, and gym facilities.

You will have the opportunity to complete work experience, spending time working on an actual construction project alongside industry professionals and to represent the ollege in competitions across the region.
