Super Skilled construction apprentices compete to be the best
78 competitors from all over the Province tested their skills at Skillbuild 2015 which was held at Belfast Metropolitan College, Castlereagh Campus on 29th & 30th April 2015.
Skillbuild NI is held annually each spring, with the top local construction apprentices competing to win coveted titles in 10 different construction craft areas ranging from brickwork to wall and floor tiling. The winners may then go on to represent Northern Ireland in the UK Skillbuild Finals and potentially the UK at WorldSkills.
The Skillbuild NI competition not only encourages trainees to improve their own skills, but provides an example of the high quality work being produced in training organisations and colleges across NI. The Skillbuild test pieces are designed to challenge the ability of apprentices, testing skills within tight timeframes and the competitors are being continuously assessed throughout the 2 day competition.
The overall winning competitor was joiner Kyle Weir from Omagh. Kyle is pictured here with TV Presenter, Sarah Travers.
