Candidates gain the Bricklaying Advanced Apprenticeship Level 3 framework qualification by completing and achieving:

NVQ Level 3: Site based evidence portfolio.

Technical Certificate: College-based course covering trade knowledge: exam and practical assessments.

Literacy and Numeracy: Fulfilled by completion of Maths and English at an appropriate level.

ERR: Employment Rights and Responsibilities, achieved at Level 2

PLTS: Personal Learning and Thinking Skills

All qualification elements must be achieved to complete the Apprenticeship Framework. There are a number of mandatory units concentrating on health and safety in the workplace to be completed. Apprentices will be required to study a number of optional units linked to specific trade requirements.


What qualifications do I need?

Apprentices should be employed within an appropriate construction environment. Apprentices will be invited to attend a short informal interview prior to the course commencing and to undertake initial assessment to demonstrate the minimum levels of literacy and numeracy required. Apprentices will be allocated a personal tutor for guidance throughout the duration of the course.


The process of assessment requires the demonstration of skills together with appropriate knowledge and understanding to a specified standard. Assessment of the NVQ is based on a combination of observation, questioning and collection of evidence from the workplace.
