Plastering student through to national SkillBuild final
A City of Liverpool College student is through to the final of a national competition to find best in class trainees and apprentices in leading construction occupations.
Plastering student, Jack Wilson, took first place in a regional heat of the SkillBuild construction competition which took place in June. His results were amongst the highest in the country from more than 300 contestants who took part in thirteen regional heats held between April and June 2014. Jack’s score means he qualifies for the SkillBuild national final at The Skills Show in Birmingham’s NEC in November.
SkillBuild is the largest multi-trade competition in the country for construction trainees and apprentices, and covers the ten craft occupations of bricklaying, cabinet making, carpentry, dry walling system, joinery, painting & decorating, plastering, roofing, stonemasonry and wall and floor tiling.
Success at the SkillBuild regional heats will give entrants the opportunity to challenge for a place on the WorldSkills UK team and a chance to compete at the 2015 WorldSkills competition in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
