Northern Ireland SkillBuild

The UK Copper Board provides sponsorship for the skills competition held in Northern Ireland. Skillbuild NI is held annually each spring, with the top local construction apprentices competing to win coveted titles in 12 different construction craft areas ranging from brickwork to wall and floor tiling to plumbing. The winners may then go on to represent Northern Ireland in the UK SkillPLUMB Final 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 Northern Ireland. 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 two-day competition.
