Similar to tiling level 2 but more advanced, the level 3 course will enable you to achieve City and Guilds NVQ level 3 qualifications.
The difference in the courses is that the tiling level 3 programme starts with basic training and ends at an advanced level and includes the completion of an assigned main project. Essentially, if you have already taken a basic course, such as tiling DIY or have competent knowledge of practical brickwork at the foundation level, you could enrol in the tiling level 3 course.
The tiling level 3 course also prepares you to be employable for building works upon successful completion of the programme and passing marks on assessments and exams. At the successful end of this journey, you will receive a City and Guilds qualification with a clear path to achieving tiling level 3 NVQ and obtaining a CSCS card (which is now required on any build work in the UK).
Some training providers will help you gain practical hands on build experience by assigning you to specialist tiling projects as part of your assessments and in turn could be documented and used to form part of your proof of competencies portfolio. These assignments will include design/labour but also learning how to estimate a job, ability to site materials and labour costs and how to record, report and document work sites and build works.
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.
Who is the tiling level 3 course aimed at?
The tiling level 3 course is ideal for people with competent basic tiling skills, to enable them to work on more complex tiling projects of their own. It could also be undertaken by people with minimal experience of tiling. The tiling level 3 course is also very popular for people seeking a career as a professional City and Guilds qualified tiler and this course will prepare them to undertake tiling level 3 NVQ and CSCS status.
The tiling level 3 course is described below:
Tiling level 3 course content
Each educational provider’s course content differs from another but in general, the tiling level 3 course will include emphasis on safety, regulations, materials and equipment selections, alongside more complex tiling projects, methods and techniques, that in turn could form the basis of a successfully competent tiling level 3 NVQ completed portfolio. During all the phases of the course, you will be guided on best practice, safety and time management and speed without compromising safety and quality.
Some training providers may include marble and slate tiling, tanking and screeding and plastering and geometric tiling design and installation, in their course programme for tiling level 3.
