East Anglia Brickwork Apprenticeship Academy was established in 2021. We recognised the labour struggles in our industry and the lack of bricklayers trained to a high standard and we want to change this.
The aim is to improve our company through a “grow your own” approach but also strengthen the local industry as a whole.
As the new generation of EAB Ltd trained bricklayers, you will learn the best build methods/processes in order to provide our clients with consistent, high-quality brickwork.
The programme set-up is based on 4/5 apprentices with 3/4 bricklaying mentors onsite. We plan to grow the programme each year – adding 4/5 apprentices.
The apprenticeship is 2 years in duration – enabling you to achieve the new brickwork standard level 2 which has taken the place of the old NVQ level 2 qualification.
The training, both theory and practical, is all site-based.
If you are interested in joining East Anglia Brickwork as an apprentice within our academy then please get in touch.
We would also love to invite any companies who would like to form a partnership with the academy to make contact.
We are keen to strengthen the academy with additional brickwork teachers to teach theoretical aspects as well as experienced bricklayers who have an interest in helping our apprentices reach their potential.
