The SkillBuild competition categories are:

  • Bricklaying
  • Carpentry
  • Furniture and Cabinet Making
  • Joinery
  • Painting & Decorating
  • Plastering
  • Drylining (previously Plastering and Drywall)
  • Roof Slating and Tiling

How does the competition work?

The Regional Qualifiers run UK-wide, from April to July each year. These one-day events bring together apprentices and trainees who complete a set task relevant to their trade. Once the Qualifiers have finished, the marks are collated and the eight highest-scoring competitors in each specialist skill go through to the next round – the SkillBuild National Final.

For additional information read the Skillbuild competition rules (PDF, 173KB).
