Congratulations to Mark Straw, one of our Level 2 Plastering students who competed at the Skillbuild National Finals.
SkillBuild is delivered by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and showcases some of the brightest talent in construction.
After successfully competing in regional qualifiers, Mark was recognised amongst the the brightest talent in construction and competed in the finals which took place in Milton Keynes. The prestigious final brought together highly skilled learners and apprentices to battle it out to be crowned winner of their chosen trade.
Across the three days competitors were tasked with constructing a project designed by an expert panel of judges, within an 18-hour timeframe. The project tests the individual’s knowledge and skills, as well as their ability to work under pressure, ensuring they adhere to health and safety protocols.
Mark is a tenacious plastering student who has demonstrated his talent and dedication in the SkillBuild National Final. Mark’s performance is a testament to his hard work and commitment to his craft, and we were proud to have him represent Nottingham College in this prestigious competition.— Paul Dixon — Curriculum Manager for Construction
