What will the apprentice be doing?

The apprentice will receive full training and support throughout their apprenticeship and be supervised at all times on the construction site.

You will be working alongside other builders which will give you the opportunity to gain experience in other home improvement activities that are carried out. Due to the nature of the work, a CSCS card is required to be able to get onto the building site, and training on this will be given if you pass the interview stage with Skills Group.

Work duties will include

  • Safe working practices
  • Labouring
  • Setting out work areas
  • Understanding and Interpreting information
  • Preparing mortar by hand
  • Using specific tools required for tasks
  • Measuring materials and cutting
  • Keeping all work areas clean and tidy
  • Manual Lifting

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

  • Level 2 Bricklayer Apprenticeship
  • Functional Skills Maths and English (If GCSE Maths and English are not at Grade C/4 or above)
  • CSCS training to be provided.

As part of the apprenticeship programme, attendance is required at our Skills Group training centre for one day per week. All other aspects of the qualification will be delivered on-site by the employer. You will have regular visits every six to eight weeks from your designated Skills Group assessor, who will monitor your progress during your apprenticeship training.

Whilst at the Skills Group training centre, you will learn the necessary skills and gain experience to help you throughout your role. Part of your training will be knowledge and theory based, whilst the rest will be practical. You will develop your hand skills, carry out brick and block work, learn the correct use of specific tools, carry out pointing and learn mortar ratio mixes under the guidance of your assessor. Learning all these additional skills will benefit you on returning to the employer.

As an additional qualification you will also achieve your Emergency First Aid and Health and Safety Certificate, along with Internet Safety and Safeguarding.

As part of your apprenticeship Skills Group will also support you to complete your online CSCS test, which will enable you to apply for your CSCS Card. This shows that you are at the required competent level to carry out site work with the employer.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

On completion of your Level 2 Apprenticeship with Lee Julian, an opportunity to apply for a full time post may be offered to the right learner. Alternatively, you could go on to complete your Level 3 in Bricklaying, or, go on to be self-employed and start your own company.
