SkillBuild, delivered by CITB, is the largest multi-trade skills competition in the UK for construction trainees and apprentices.

Registration for regional heats is now open. Categories include Plastering and Drylining (previously Plastering and Drywall).

FIS will be attending and is encouraging members to get behind the regional heats to support the competition and use these opportunities to engage with local schools and colleges.  Our aim is to ensure key interior trades such as Drylining, Plastering and Carpentry and Joinery have a strong presence in the competition and we use the opportunity that SkillBuild provides to promote the sector.

Having attended the 2023 SkillBuild finals, the excitement and motivation in the room of all the participants was inspiring.

The SkillBuild competition offers an opportunity for talented apprentices and learners of all ages to compete regionally against one another in various trade categories.

SkillBuild offers many benefits for employers and training providers, such as:

  • Showcase the quality of your training programmes through success in competitions
  • Highlight your organisations commitment to raising standards in work-based learning.
  • Boost your long-term business performance
