So you've completed both the tiling DIY and tiling advanced courses and now are you considering undertaking the City and Guilds level 2 NQV qualification. The tiling level 2 course is usually twice as long to undertake but well worth the time and good effort to complete if you are serious about becoming a competent qualified tiler.
One advantage of the tiling level 2 course is that the programme usually teaches from very basic tiling through to City and Guilds assessments, so you will not be required to know much about tiling to enrol in the programme. However, each training provider will have a slightly different course curriculum. Some providers may also introduce plastering and geometric tiling and other types of tiling as part of their programme.
The tiling level 2 course will get you working on advanced tiling work, as well as receive guidance on getting your competency portfolio together for assessment. At the successful end of this journey, you will receive a City and Guilds qualification with a clear path to achieving NVQ level 2 and obtaining a CSCS card (which is now required on any build work in the UK).
Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
Who is the tiling level 2 course aimed at?
The tiling level 2 course is ideal for people with minimal to competent basic tiling skills and will enable them to work on more complex tiling projects of their own or as part of their career training to become a NVQ qualified tiler and to obtain CSCS status.
The tiling level 2 course is described below:
Tiling level 2 course content
Each educational provider’s course content differs from another but in general, the tiling level 2 course will include emphasis on safety, regulations, materials and equipment selections, alongside more complex tiling projects, methods and techniques, that in turn could form the basis of a successfully competent tiling level 2 NVQ completed portfolio.
Some training providers include marble and slate tiling, tanking and screeding and plastering and rendering in their course programme for tiling level 2.
