About the course

This one-year qualification is for you if you are looking to start a career in the construction sector and learn a trade as a plasterer. There are separate classes for 16-18 year olds and for adults. You will be introduced to the world of construction at our dedicated training facility based in the Bordesley Green campus. State-of-the-art workshops, equipped with professional quality tools, means that you will be learning in an environment which simulates a real-life building site.

You will learn the basic principles of plastering to enable you to successfully plaster a traditional two coat plastered wall, fix a corner bead and skim a ceiling. You will be taught how to use plastering tools and equipment and be able to identify the correct materials to use.

What do I need?

There are no entry requirements other than an interest in learning more about construction with a view to working in the industry. 16-19 year old learners are also required to attend English and maths lessons, either as a Functional Skill or GCSE, unless they are exempt and have previously attained a GCSE grade 4 and above.

Where can I progress next?

You could progress on to the Plastering Level 2 course or an apprenticeship.
