Course overview

Plasterers mix and then paste plaster onto the interior surfaces of buildings to prepare them for decoration. The main role of a plasterer is to paste layers of plaster onto walls, floors and ceilings. Plastering serves a protective function, in that it makes buildings more robust, and an aesthetic function. It is a skilled job and there is a high demand for good plasterers. Plasterers work on a number of different buildings, including new housing developments, offices and houses (redecorations or extensions). They repair or restore existing plasterwork and plaster newly erected walls.

There are approximately 40,000 plasterers working in the UK, and demand is growing due to government housing development schemes. Plasterers sometimes work on their own when working on peoples’ homes. On larger-scale projects, however, they may work in teams, each covering different sections of a wall.
