Below we answer all the frequently asked questions about Corobrik's bricklayer training.
Click on the arrow on the left to see the answers.
Where are the Corobrik Building Training Centres located?
Lansdowne, Western Cape
Is the training accredited?
What is the duration of the training?
We offer two training programmes:
A one-year learnership that includes theory and a practical component
A short nine-week skills programme that cherry picks modules from the learnership
Do you offer on-site training?
Yes - as an added incentive for our major customers, we have bricklayers that can go to site.
Another focus for the Corobrik training is to support local economic development projects, whereby bricklaying promotes empowerment and social upliftment and boosts the economy. This is a key initiative for us. We do not only want to hand out certificates but want to contribute to viable employment opportunities that fill critical gaps in the construction industry. It is critical, especially as bricklaying has been prioritised by the government as a scarce skill.
Who conducts the training?
The trainers themselves are employed by Corobrik and qualified both in their trade and as training facilitators.
Can women apply for the training?
Yes - an interesting trend is an increased uptake of the training by women.
How do you apply for the training?
What is the cost of the training?
Once I've completed the training, will Corobrik assist me in getting a job?
The long-term goal is that everyone who gets trained is employed. The idea is to bring together as many property value chain partners as possible in the various regions – from contractors to developers and occupiers – with ourselves as the training provider and to pool all our resources along with the government. For example, by linking up with the Department of Human Settlements, the Corobrik training initiative is a fine example of a public-private sector partnership that assists in achieving the government’s skills development objectives and provides gainful employment.
