What is SkillBuild?
All you need to know about the upcoming regional and national competitions.
SkillBuild, delivered by CITB, is the largest multi-trade skills competition in the UK for construction trainees and apprentices.
The winners of the SkillBuild National Final 2023 have been announced, after 78 construction trainees went head-to-head over three days.
SkillBuild is delivered by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and showcases some of the brightest talent in construction. The prestigious competition brings together highly skilled learners and apprentices to battle it out to be crowned winner of their chosen trade.
Following the Regional Qualifiers, which were held at various colleges across the UK earlier this year, the National Final took place at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes on 21 – 23 November. The event attracted around 1,000 visitors, exhibiting the variety of skills and career opportunities available within the industry.
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.
