If you're interested in floor or wall tiling, we've got you covered. In this Wall and Floor Tiling program, you'll learn how to lay ceramic, clay, slate, marble, glass and other types of tiles on external and internal walls and floors. You'll use tiles to provide protective and decorative finishes; and learn how to use tile-cutting tools to cut and shape tiles needed for edges, corners, or around obstacles such as fittings and pipes.
Most of your work will be undertaken on new buildings, including houses, shops, offices, factories and swimming pools, but wall and floor tilers also carry out renovations to existing buildings. Throughout your apprenticeship you'll learn about using wall and floor tiling tools and equipment; fixing floor and wall tiles; carrying out decorative tiling; tiling domestic pools and spas; and carrying out concreting to simple forms
