Stonemasons create practical or beautiful (usually both) stone items that can last for centuries.
Your construction salary will typically range depending on location and level of responsibility. Salaries and career options improve with chartered/master status.
There are no specific entry requirements for this course, but Maths, English and Design and Technology GCSEs at 4 (C) or above are useful to have. In Scotland, Standard Grades/Scottish Nationals and in Wales, the Welsh Baccalaureate or WJEC in Construction are equivalents.
You could start your career as an apprentice stonemason, or you could start as a bricklayer and then specialise in stonemasonry.
As an experienced stonemason you may choose to undertake a level 3 apprenticeship which would incorporate the diploma and NVQ qualification.
