Eastern Region Training to Host 3 Skill Build Heats in June

Eastern Region Training to Host 3 Skill Build Heats in June

We are thrilled to announce that Eastern Region Training will be hosting a Slate & Tile Roofing, Painting & Decorating and Joinery Skill Build Heat on the 5th June 2019.

Skill Build 2019 is going to be held from Birmingham’s NEC again this year for the largest UK multi-trade competition for construction trainees and apprentices. Forming part of WorldSkills, SkillBuild is the largest multi-trade competition in the UK for construction trainees and apprentices, allowing them to compete in their chosen field, from roof slating to carpentry, stonemasonry to plastering.

Heats for the Slate & Tile Roofing, Painting & Decorating and Carpentry events will take place across the UK (including Eastern Region Training). Finalists will be chosen from the winners of each heat. Each competitor will undertake a specific project and demonstrate time management, commitment and technical ability. They will need to show accurate interpretation of drawings as well as cutting, pointing and application techniques – using the appropriate PPE to safely create a secure structure, free from defects.

We are very much looking forward to hosting a heat and wish all of the entrants the best of luck!
