The plastering level 2 courses are designed to teach anyone who aspires to become a fully qualified professional plasterer.
While each educational provider’s course content differs, in general the plasterer level 2 course will include emphasis on safety, regulations, materials and equipment selections, alongside more complex plastering projects, tools, methods and techniques. All this could form the basis of a successfully competent plasterer level 2 NVQ completed portfolio for assessment. No matter which one you undertake, you will become a competent plasterer if that is your goal.
The plastering level 2 course will get you working on more advanced plastering work as well as be guided and assisted on getting your competency portfolio together for assessment. At the successful end of your learning journey, you will receive the City and Guilds Guilds 6708-23 level 2, with a clear path to achieving NVQ level 2 as well as obtaining a CSCS card (which is now required on any build work in the UK).
All training is hands-on, practical and based on real life applications. Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
