Bricklaying

There’s plenty of demand for bricklayers, so if you like practical work, the outdoors and don’t mind heights, then this could be the profession for you.

Bricklaying is taught in our new purpose-built, industry-standard Ribblehead Construction Building on our Aireville Campus, Skipton.
You will have access to a new Bricklaying Workshop with industry-standard equipment.
Our tutors are specialist craftspeople and have many years’ experience in the construction industry in both large and small businesses with specialisms in heritage and conservation work. You will have the opportunity to enter the prestigious CITB Skill Build competition. All tools, equipment and materials are included.
