The Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers encourages excellence in the tiling and bricklaying industries and has awards for outstanding tiling and brickwork, as well as for individuals training for NVQs and higher qualifications in the craft.
As part of its charitable work, the Company is launching a new Craft Bursary Scheme which is designed to provide financial support to deserving persons throughout the UK who are undertaking an approved form of craft training. The scheme will launch on the 1st of April 2023 and is supported by the Brick Development Association. If selected as a beneficiary of the scheme, the successful candidates will each receive an award in the sum of £1,000. Full details can be found here.
The Company makes a number of awards as part of its historic commitment to encouraging the very highest levels of craftsmanship in bricklaying, roof slating and tiling and hard-surface wall and floor tiling with the Triennial Awards honouring the best examples in buildings completed within the previous three years inside the area bounded by the M25. The winners of the 2021 Tylers and Bricklayers Triennial Awards were announced at an Awards ceremony held at Apothecaries’ Hall on Thursday 2 September 2021.
As one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City of London, numbered 37 in the order of precedence, it has an active charitable, educational and social programme.
The Company received its first Royal Charter in 1568, although its roots go back to the fifteenth century, and its Livery (membership) currently stands at approximately one hundred and fifty.
