Bricklaying Instructors

Our Bricklaying instructors, Simon and Paul, have both spent many years working as Bricklayers on site and have now transferred their skills to a training environment and additionally, have obtained the required qualifications to teach and assess people as well as internally verify the longer courses.

The two skills together ensure that the training courses we provide are to a very high standard and also ensure that everyone attending, for whichever course option, all receive the very highest standard of teaching and shared knowledge. They are also regularly available to provide you with any after course support you may need.

Progression is key for Able Skills; we are keen to take candidates as far as is possible in their career as Bricklayers, providing support and guidance along the way.
