We are the bricklaying apprenticeship experts

Our centres focus on supporting individuals achieve qualifications in bricklaying, groundwork and health and safety and to gain the skills they need to enter into the construction industry.

Build Skill’s facilities welcome both construction workers who have previous experience in the industry and new entrants that require structured training in order to progress in their career.

Our mission is to fill the skills gap and train the next generation of bricklayers. We achieve this by working closely with professional building contractors whilst maintaining strong links across the construction industry. As well as training you in modern and responsible bricklaying, we also organise placements at local companies so that you can gain hands-on experience in the sector.

With the construction industry being given significant attention and treated as a priority by the government, training through Build Skill is your opportunity to join a growing industry of dedicated and highly skilled bricklayers.

The construction industry offers a variety of rewarding roles and endless routes for career progression, so make sure to get in touch if you’re interested in any of our training provisions.

Building Futures

We believe that young people should be given every opportunity to pursue a rewarding and worthwhile career. That’s why we offer schoolchildren the chance to
gain hands on experience through our multi-skill construction programmes.

We’re always ready to partner up with schools across the region to offer an alternative provision which shows children how to enter a career in the construction industry

I’ve been on the apprenticeship a few months now and so far it’s going well. At college and on-site, the people are all good, and everyone is helpful. Glad I got the apprenticeship it is going to help get on the trowel so I can build houses when I am qualified.

I’ve been on the apprenticeship since June, the course has been very detailed but is very useful and a great help practically. I have learnt a lot of skills on site and hope to start laying bricks very soon. The support I receive from college staff has been outstanding, they offer assistance in all areas of my life. I would highly recommend the apprenticeship at Buildskill to anyone considering a career in construction.

I started the apprenticeship in January, the work is fun but can be exhausting but at the end of the day, I am making a better me. The training is amazing, I have developed a huge amount from never seeing or having picked up a trowel, to helping build houses, garages and garden walls. I think an apprenticeship with build skill is really good and would recommend it to anyone.

NEECA was introduced to Build Skills through CIBT when Build skills attended both our employer Day and Careers event. Our students can be very challenging and Build Skills have been very supportive towards them. NEECA has had 3 students put on apprenticeships, 3 students attending Traineeships and 1 student on a 14-16 programme to date. NEECA have built close relationships with all staff who we have found both very professional, approachable and incredibly supportive throughout our collaborative working.
