Southport College offered the best construction courses and is close to my home so was the obvious choice for me. The bricklaying course has helped me to develop the skills and knowledge I needed to find a job as a bricklayer; what I have always wanted to do. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to get a trade. The practical sessions are really good and the staff are helpful too. I already have a job as a bricklayer and will be continuing with this next year.
