Plastering Diploma Level 2

About the course

Our most comprehensive plastering course with an industry recognised qualification. This is a formal Plastering trade qualification and is ideal for students who want to develop and progress in their career or for anyone who wants to start a new career. All of the training and assessments can be done in our centre so you do not have to be working onsite to complete the qualification. This qualification allows you to learn, develop and practice the skills required for employment and/or career progression in Plastering.

The Diploma also includes on-site experience with a qualified and experienced plasterer.

Each Unit of the course contains practical assessments, which are assessed by one of our qualified assessors and evidence kept to build up a complete portfolio. There are also multiple-choice tests, which can be undertaken at the centre or on your own PC. You will be fully supported by our tutors throughout the qualification. Our small classes mean you will have plenty of support and hands on guidance from your tutor and assessors.

Depending on the pathway you choose – ‘solid’ or ‘fibrous’ – you will learn how to:

Apply plastering materials to interiors
Fix dry lining and plasterboards to interiors
Lay sand and cement screeds
Apply plastering materials to external backgrounds
Produce reverse moulds for fibrous work
Cast and fix fibrous plasterwork

After course options & support

After completing the Diploma, you may want to progress onto the plastering NVQ at a later date and you can also complete that with us.

You can also join our support group on completion for support and to arrange onsite work experience.

Over the years we've built up a fantastic community of students – you can join our ’Plaster-Minds’ support groups both on WhatsApp and a dedicated Facebook page. You will have instant access to support from a close network of tutors and experienced plasterers.

Business start up training is optional on all of our courses – our experienced tutors will guide you on establishing and running your business.
