On completion of this four-year apprenticeship, you will become a fully qualified brick and stonelayer, with a QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate Craft – Brick and Stonelaying.
Brick and stonelayers go on to be employed in the building industry, working on new buildings, restorations, and extensions.
Many craftspersons use their qualification as a platform to launch careers such as managers, owners of businesses and instructors amongst others.
Working as a Brick and Stonelayer, you will be required to construct all types of walling, interior and exterior, from plain walls to more detailed work.
The work can be solid and cavity walls, partitions, fireplaces, chimneys and other structures. As many sizes and colours of building material are used, considerable skill is needed to combine these into bonds to meet requirements.
To become an apprentice in Ireland you must be hired by an employer. Apprenticeship employers are formally approved by SOLAS in advance of employing apprentices. Apprentices get a formal contract of employment as part of their apprenticeship.
Full eligibility criteria for this apprenticeship are available in the Brick & StoneLaying Apprenticeship brochure.
