  • 14 May 2018

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has announced its support for the GQA Qualifications “Building Our Skills in Fenestration” campaign.

The newly launched campaign from GQA Qualifications aims to attract the best new young talent in the many fields within fenestration, by offering industry-based qualifications and learning.

The GGF is delighted to support the campaign and urges all companies in the industry to get behind it.”

The initiative will highlight the wide variety of different career paths available to young entrants, and an awareness of the qualifications they can achieve to give them learning, life-skills and ultimately career opportunities and financial rewards.

Mick Clayton CEO of GQA Qualifications, the lead promoter of the campaign, “The Building Our Skills in the Fenestration Industry campaign is an initiative for the whole industry to join in with and support to provide a platform to promote Fenestration with a collective voice and accelerate the process of raising its profile to new entrants as a credible and exciting career choice.”unnamed-1

GQA asks that companies support the campaign by; wearing the campaign badge on their marketing material, by providing interesting video footage, images or case studies of their workforce, installations or manufacturing plants to proactively promote the campaign.

The campaign is set to launch to the public – schools, colleges, teachers, parents and other relevant forums and campaign groups from June 1st.
