Ready to leave the classroom and get stuck into something more practical? Our Brickwork courses could be for you!

Our Brickwork courses are available at Level/s 1, 2, 3

A career in construction allows you to work outdoors in a variety of locations, meaning each day is a different challenge and experience. Working as part of a team, high earning potential and the possibility of becoming your own boss are just some of the benefits you could experience when entering the industry. With the rise in digital industries, many traditional career options are being made obsolete.

However learning a trade and working in construction is something that will continue to be vital and very much in demand. Choosing to study brickwork at Scarborough TEC will allow you to benefit from the experience and knowledge of the many regional businesses we work with here at Scarborough TEC, as well as the guidance and support of our experienced tutors.

You’ll learn about safe working practices, building methods and construction technology as well as basic brick and block laying techniques in our industry standard workshops.
