This Level 3 Technical Diploma is aimed at you if you are looking to work in the construction industry specifically as an advanced craft bricklayer. It will provide you with a range of specialist technical practical skills and knowledge, which will equip you to seek employment or further training in bricklaying. The qualification is designed so that you learn the underlying principles and practical skills involved, as well as getting an overview of how a construction site is run including the rules and regulations. Building regulations and other rules and regulations on building sites are very strictly controlled, so it is important that you learn about these as well as the practical skills.
