Frequently asked questions

  • Bricklaying is a skilled trade that involves laying bricks and other types of building blocks to create structures such as walls, chimneys, and arches. It requires a high level of manual dexterity, good spatial awareness, and an ability to read and interpret technical drawings.

  • You will typically need a Level 2 Diploma in Bricklaying, which covers skills such as setting out, building walls and installing arches. You can also gain qualifications through apprenticeships or on-the-job training.

  • There are several routes into bricklaying, including college courses, apprenticeships, or on-the-job training. Many bricklayers start their careers as apprentices, which typically involve a combination of practical work experience and classroom-based learning.

  • A bricklaying apprenticeship typically lasts around 2-3 years, during which time you will work alongside experienced bricklayers to learn the skills of the trade. Apprenticeships can be found through the National Apprenticeship Service website, local employers, or you can find providers online.

  • The pay for a bricklayer can vary depending on location, experience, and the type of work involved. Entry-level bricklayers can earn around £20,000 per year, while more experienced professionals can earn up to £40,000 per year. Self-employed bricklayers may be able to earn more, but will need to factor in the cost of materials and tools.
