Important Entry Requirement & Application Update
College is still accepting online applications for courses starting in September 2020.

Would you like a career in plastering?
This programme covers a range of plastering techniques at an advanced level, adding to your knowledge of the trade. You will gain the expertise to work independently, as well as a recognised Level 2 qualification.
The programme is suitable for students progressing from Plastering Level 1, and will build on the knowledge gained at that level. It is also suitable for people with practical experience at a suitable level, who may not need to undertake the Level 1 programme.

As part of the application process, you will be asked to attend an interview to give you the opportunity to discuss the course.
You will study a variety of subject-specific modules, in addition to Literacy and Numeracy skills.
The programme will be delivered through a blend of the following:
