Learning a trade remains as popular a path as ever for people around the UK, and there are good reasons for that. Tiling, after all, is unlikely to ever go out of fashion, with all manner of floors and walls up and down the UK needing to be tiled to the utmost level of professionalism Furthermore, once one is experienced in this field, it is possible to earn as much as £38,000 a year.
These factors, in turn, help to explain why tiling intensive courses like our very own here at YTA continue to be sought-after.
Indeed, for a wide range of people who are interested in a tiling career – including not only complete beginners, but also existing tradespeople who wish to extend their skill-set to tiling – there are few more attractive initial training options than our five-day and 10-day Level 1 courses.
Within just a few days, you’ll have covered considerable ground
You don’t need to possess any prior tiling experience at all if you wish to take on one of these NOCN Cskills Level 1 tiling intensive courses. That’s because we really do start from scratch – although if you have some existing tiling skills, we can always tailor the course to suit your requirements.
Even if you take on ‘just’ our five-day course, we’ll aim to ensure you leave us with sufficient information and confidence to get your new tiling career successfully underway. Indeed, according to our most recent effectiveness poll, 23 out of 30 students have set up and are now enjoying self-employed tiling careers.
The course is structured as if it was a typical tiler’s working week. This means that if you complete the first five days, you will amass considerable experience and knowhow in the process, including in relation to health and safety, surface preparation, tiling techniques, the use of all tiling tools, all aspects of cutting and drilling tiles, silicone sealing and removal, and much more.
If, though, you join us for the full 10-day course, the additional five days will give you many further specialised tasks to work through. These will include, on the Monday, tiling a kitchen with a diamond splashback going up to the funnel, followed by a Tuesday spent tiling around a window inside and out, and a Wednesday and Thursday spent concentrating on wet rooms, tanking, plunge cutting and naturals. The Friday will conclude the course with the installation of bathroom underfloor heating before tiling on it; certificates will also be presented on this day.
