Eastern Roof Training to host 2019 Skill Build Heat

We are thrilled to announce that Eastern Roof Training will be hosting a Slate & Tile 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 Roof Slating and Tiling competitors will take place at six hubs across the UK (including Eastern Roof 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!
