Students, Apprentices and New Trainees


Students, apprentices and new trainees

We want to help tradespeople be the best they can be through our Thistle Partnership, so we can build better together.

We’re dedicated to delivering high quality training for students and apprentices, to ensure the next generation of plasterers and dryliners are well equipped for their future within the industry.

The Thistle Partnership was established in 2013. It gives students at 57 further education colleges in the UK access to a variety of resources to help with their development. Through our national academies and links with colleges we aim to support the industry and help students thrive.

Our training pathway creates confident and competent workers ready for employment, and eager to make a positive impact within the industry.
