Plastering Diploma Level 2 at The Manchester College
If you’ve always wanted to work as a plasterer, or you have an interest in learning more about the plastering trade and the skills it requires, this is a fantastic course to start with. You’ll learn the principles of construction and the importance of health, safety and welfare in the industry, as you begin to develop the skills needed in applying plastering materials to interiors and fixing dry linings and plasterboards. Covering a wide range of areas and helping to expand your knowledge in a number of different areas, you’ll have the opportunity to focus on either solid or fibrous plastering. This will help you to hone your abilities and lay the groundwork for a successful career.
We don’t have any formal requirements for this course, and it’s ideal for 16 year olds who are considering a career in the construction industry. You will have to sit some basic assessments in Maths and English before you enrol, but this is nothing to worry about.
