Finalists announced for SkillBuild 2016


""The competitors have been announced for the SkillBuild 2016 final, which will be held between the 17th and 19th November in Birmingham.

Over 70 of the UK’s best construction apprentices will battle it out in their chosen trades after progressing from this year’s regional heats.

SkillBuild, which is organised by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and supported by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), the Tile Association (TTA) and the Stone Federation, has taken place for over 40 years.

The category winners of the final at the NEC will have the chance to compete at next year’s WorldSkills final in Abu Dhabi.

Carl Rhymer, CITB’s Delivery and Customer Engagement Director, said: “I would like to congratulate all of the finalists for reaching this stage of the competition.

“After battling it out against some great construction talent in their regional heats, they should be extremely proud of their achievements so far – but I’m sure they will all be desperate to come out on top.

“SkillBuild is an excellent way of showcasing the talented young people that are currently in the industry and will also inspire more people to consider a career in construction.”

The SkillBuild 2016 finalists are:
