Level 2

West Suffolk College is working in partnership with Anglian Water to offer a level 2 construction course at our Milburn Centre Construction Campus. 
The course will provide students with the skills and knowledge, hands on learning and real work experience, to make them work ready for a highly skilled and rewarding career with Anglian Water and their partner companies.
Students will work and learn alongside College tutors as well as experienced employees from Anglian Water and their partner companies to achieve a City & Guilds L2 General Construction Certificate.
Students will be expected to attend college for three days a week, plus a work placement with one of the alliance companies, for a minimum of five days each year.
Students will have the opportunity to try the career, while studying, and will be guaranteed a job interview with Anglian Water and their Partner Companies for a full time apprenticeship, once they have completed and achieved their studies.
Anglian Water's five alliances have been created to deliver investment worth up to £9 billion of work over 15 years. Working together they deliver every kind of investment ranging from building large new water treatment works, to repairing small leaks and connecting new properties to the network.

The construction sector is the driving force behind the UK economy, employing three million people and contributing 6.4% of GDP. Not only that, the construction industry is central to delivering the homes, schools, hospitals, energy and transport infrastructure our society demands. A career in the construction industry is like no other. Bricklaying is a core function within the construction sector, particularly the house building sector. The Government has a target to build significantly more new homes over the coming years and therefore the demand for bricklayers has never been higher.

Bricklayers lay bricks, blocks and other types of building components in mortar to construct and repair walls, foundations, partitions, arches and other structures eg chimney stacks. They might also refurbish brickwork and masonry on restoration projects. The range of sites and projects that bricklayers will work on include large commercial developments, new builds in housing, alterations, extensions and restorations. A bricklayer may work one-on-one or on larger jobs where their bricklaying group (gang) may work on a particular section of a building alongside other bricklaying gangs as well as other trades.

An Intermediate Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme designed by employers in the sector. It allows you to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience while being paid to do so. Along with functional and personal skills that are needed for your immediate job and future career you will learn through a mix of project based learning in the workplace, formal off the job training, and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work context.
