Level 1 Brickwork
Previous school: Thomas Adams School
I'm in my second year of brickwork and I've been learning a lot about attention to detail. I've got a part-time job on building sites on Mondays and Fridays where I work on extensions, new builds, renovations - anything you can think of really. At college, we learn the techniques and at work, I get to put them into practice.
