Our adult level 2 brickwork courses will train learners to build and repair structures, walls, chimneys, walkways and foundations using various types of blocks and brick. On completion of the course learners will have the skills to compete a range of projects from a small brickwork project, a house extension to a major stadium project. No matter what level you are currently working at, you will continue learning English and maths throughout your course.
