Two of our wonderful apprentices have been listed in the country’s top twenty roofing apprentices, where they could be awarded the prestigious title of pitched roofing BMI Apprentice of the Year 2019. A huge congratulations to Chantel Daniels and Liam Gee for this achievement.
The competition is part of a strategy by BMI UK & Ireland – the UK’s largest manufacturer of flat and pitched roofing and waterproofing solutions – to address the challenges faced by the building industry in meeting the ambitious Government housing targets.
Success in the competition identifies an apprentice as a stand-out individual and as someone with a bright future in the sector.
The final takes place over two days – July 2nd and 3rd – at the BMI Academy in South Cerney, Gloucestershire. Finalists will receive professional coaching on all aspects of running a roofing business – including business planning, presentation skills, and technical skills – before being assessed, making this a complete learning experience.
A selection of leading figures in the roofing industry will be judging the candidates. They will also take part in ‘knowledge-sharing sessions’ over the course of the two days to answer questions and share the benefits of their experience to help pass the baton on to this next generation of roofers.
The competition culminates with the Apprentice of the Year Awards Dinner – consisting of the 20 finalists, their tutors and employers, and judges – where the winners of the 2019 competition will be announced.
