As part of the continued drive to strengthen the network of FIS Approved Training Providers and Further Education Colleges, we are pleased to announce that Silver Trowel Ltd is the latest Approved Training Provider, recently completing its rigorous application process.

Silver Trowel Ltd is a City & Guilds and CITB-approved construction skills training provider based in Fareham, Hampshire which delivers high-quality training and short intensive practical courses in plastering, tiling, bricklaying and drywall systems. Silver Trowel also works with both small building companies and larger building maintenance firms to up-skill their current workforce.

As we have recently secured significant funding from CITB to help support our ‘Fit-Out Futures’ initiative of attracting new entrants and upskilling existing employees within our sector, it is vitally important that FIS has a strong provider and college network throughout England, Scotland and Wales. This allows us to ensure our sector has access to appropriate training facilities, whether that be for college-based training such as apprenticeships, or on-site (OSAT) qualifications.

We have a number of applications currently in progress and further announcements will follow in due course.
