Welcome to SkillBuild. Here you'll find everything you need to know about the largest multi-trade competition in the UK for construction trainees and apprentices.

2021 update

As a direct consequence of the on-going and, likely, long-lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel SkillBuild Regional Qualifiers for 2021 in their traditional format. Given the situation, this is an obvious but difficult decision, as we had every hope of resuming face-to-face activity following the similar cessation of competitions in 2020. However, we are developing plans in collaboration with WorldSkills UK to conduct a competitive qualification process towards an anticipated NEC event in November of this year. Please continue to monitor this page for up-to-date information.

We would like to thank our host venues for their support and efforts to date.

There is every hope that face-to-face qualification will return in 2022. In the meantime, and in collaboration with WorldSkills UK, we are exploring options and alternatives for this year and expect to announce the full approach ahead of the usual registration window. Again, please check these pages regularly for details!

Best wishes for the coming months from CITB and the SkillBuild team.
