Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the bricklayers and the tradesmen, managed to put Humpty together again.

The trade of Bricklaying has been a profession for centuries. A Bricklayer is a craftsperson who is trained in the art of laying bricks and blocks. Bricklaying involves paving horizontal surfaces, as well as constructing block/brick walls. 

Bricklaying courses are ideal for students who like the outdoors and prefer practical experience to theoretical learning -however some theory is still involved. Bricklaying involves a lot more than small retainers and walls. Bricklayers have played a part in the construction of some of the biggest and most iconic buildings in the world.

Becoming a Bricklayer also means learning how to erect scaffolding, operating machinery and being able to identifying the right type of materials to use from plans. Bricklaying is not a solo job, and being a Bricklayer means learning to work within a team, to get the job done effectively and efficiently.
