FIS showcased its flagship BuildBack programme by hosting an open day at Tyne Metropolitan College on 10 April.


The event enjoyed full attendance and participation from all partners, employers and trainees including Mary Glindon, MP for North Tyneside. The trainees put on a demonstration of their skills learnt to date.

MP Mary Glindon said “what I have seen here today is trainees building new skills and getting into a trade,  that will not just carry them forward in a job for life,  but will enable them to earn a high level of income”.

Working in collaboration with CITB and in partnership with Tyne Metropolitan College, Jobcentre Plus and Dry Lining and Plastering Training Forum (DLPTF), the programme is designed to provide opportunities for job seekers who are serious about developing a career in drylining.
