Entries for this year’s BMI Apprentice of the Year competition, the hotly contested award for aspirational and ambitious roofing apprentices, must be submitted by Friday 3 May 2019.
All those recognised as an apprentice by their employer, or those working towards qualified status, are encouraged to enter.
Two prestigious titles – one for pitched and one for flat roofing – will be awarded and winning the competition identifies who possesses the commitment, ability and the potential to achieve great things, whether as a leading employee, independent businessperson of the future or a college lecturer.
Beyond the prestige and kudos, there is also a trophy and prize bundle; plus ongoing support from the team at the BMI National Training Centre.
Mat Woodyatt, BMI UK & Ireland’s Technical Training Manager, commented: “We are currently receiving high quality entries from colleges across the country and will do right up to the wire.
“With the deadline of 3 May looming, there’s every reason why trainees and tutors should bid for victory in this great competition now.”
To enter, candidates are asked three questions about how they see change affecting the sector in the next five years; and then have to submit a short personal statement on how their training has seen their attitude to roofing change.
Twenty candidates are then shortlisted and invited to the competition final which takes place over two days at the BMI National Training Centre in Gloucestershire.
Finalists 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.
The two-day event concludes in the Apprentice of the Year awards dinner – consisting of the finalists, their tutors, and judges – where the winners of the 2019 competition will be announced.
