2011 was the eleventh consecutive year that Somerset College hosted the regional SkillBuild heat and students came from as far as Gloucestershire and Cornwall to take part at the day-long event on May 12.
SkillBuild is the largest multi-trade competition in the country for construction trainees and apprentices. It covers ten crafts including: Bricklaying, cabinet making, carpentry, dry walling systems, joinery, painting and decorating, plastering, roofing, stonemasonry, wall and floor tiling.
Success at the SkillBuild regional heats will give entrants the opportunity to challenge for a place on the WorldSkills UK team and progress to compete at the 2013 WorldSkills competition in Leipzig, Germany.
The national competition is run by ConstructionSkills with the endorsement of UK Skills, competition managers for the bi-annual WorldSkills competitions.
