Ap­pren­tices in UK fi­nal

Stirling Observer - - PRIMARY ONES -

Two ap­pren­tices from Forth Val­ley Col­lege have won places at the fi­nal of the UK’s long­est-run­ning con­struc­tion skills com­pe­ti­tion.

Ross Cowie (stone­ma­sonry), and Cal­lum Bon­ner (paint­ing and dec­o­rat­ing) have pro­gressed to the UK na­tional fi­nal of Skill­build, which will be held at the Bir- ming­ham NEC from Novem­ber 16-18.

Skill­build, or­gan­ised by the Con­struc­tion In­dus­try Train­ing Board (CITB), has been show­cas­ing the tal­ents of the in­dus­try for over 40 years.

The com­pe­ti­tion sees con­struc­tion trainees from across the UK com­pete in their cho­sen trades, which in­clude brick­lay­ing, wall and floor tiling and paint­ing and dec­o­rat­ing.

The duo will now take on fi­nal­ists from across the UK with the aim of win­ning a place in the UK squad for the in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion Worldskills Kazan 2019.
