PVC student, James gained an insight into the role of a Bricklayer with Keepmoat Homes subcontractor, J & J Bricklayers, on their Farington Mews development site in Leyland.
James found a passion for bricklaying when studying for a City and Guilds Level 1 Qualification in Construction Skills at PVC and was excited to get the chance to spend time on a real building site.
The work experience placement gave James the opportunity to get an insight into the day-to-day life of a bricklayer working on a housing development whilst gaining practical hands-on experience in the construction industry. Following the successful work experience, James applied for a bricklaying apprenticeship at Keepmoat Homes and was successful.
