We're proud supporters of SkillBuild 2022

As part of our ongoing mission to support the next generation of plasterers and dryliners, we are thrilled to be sponsoring the SkillBuild 2022 final, taking place this week.

British Gypsum is delighted to be one of the sponsors of SkillBuild 2022 - the largest multi-trade competition in the UK, which sees the best construction trainees and apprentices from each region compete against each other in their chosen trade to be crowned the winner.

We are pleased to be able to support the next generation of plasterers and dryliners, and through our Thistle Partnership scheme, we are supporting aspiring tradespeople to be the best they can be.

Our Thistle Partnership scheme works with 57 further education colleges to provide students with the training and support they need to achieve their full potential. Students have access to our Learning Hub, which includes step-by-step videos, project tasks, guides and training support from our experts to not only nurture ability, but instil the confidence and knowledge required to forge a career in construction.

Sam Blacknell, Head of Skills Partnership at British Gypsum, comments: “The skills shortage facing the construction industry remains significant, which is why we’re playing our part in giving students across the UK access to resources to further their skills and development. Our Thistle Partnership scheme, is just one way in which we are contributing towards building a better future for aspiring tradespeople.

“We are thrilled to be sponsoring the SkillBuild 2022 competition, and hope that the competition helps to inspire the next generation of plasterers and dryliners.
