“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.
