CORGI Fenestration has announced its sponsorship of the new ‘Building Our Skills’ initiative from GQA Qualifications.

This a strategic initiative is designed to help bridge the widening skills gap developing in the fenestration industry.

The main objective is to get new entrants to join the industry, and to develop their skills through qualifications and training.

CORGI Fenestration CEO, Chris Mayne, said the company was ‘strongly supportive’ of the campaign.

“We agree with GQA that it is vital for the fenestration industry to make itself an attractive employment option for school leavers and career changers,” he said.

“This starts to address the skills gap in our sector and also strongly promotes qualifications and ongoing training which we believe is vital.”

The Building Our Skills initiative is officially launched on 1st June, where it will provide a place for young people, and those wishing to change careers, can learn about the fenestration industry and what makes it appealing as a career choice.
