£10,000 available per company for roofing skills training – apply now!

This is great news for all of our roofing customers in Wales. Funds are available now for roofing skills training. Read on to find out more and how to apply.

The Wales National Roofing Training Group (WNRTG) is a non profit organisation funded by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to provide roofing training primarily to its members in Wales. Over 60 roofing companies are members and the Group works closely with them to ensure they are claiming relevant grants and funding for training.

CITB have funding available of up to £10,000 per company for skills training and the WNRTG have already assisted over 20 members with this training. If you have not yet claimed, you are missing out.

There is also funding available from The National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited (NFRC) for members and non-members, for NVQ2 in any roofing discipline via the On Site Assessment Route (OSAT). This is for the experienced workers who can be assessed on site.

WNRTG has delivered 6 successful SAP NVQ level 2 programmes (new entrants) over the last 3 years in South Wales which is set to qualify 36 youngsters, bringing great benefits to the industry. The next course is due to run in September.

Recently WNRTG was successful in bidding for tenders to continue to deliver SAP NVQ2 in Pitched roofing in Wales and also manage NVQ2 Pitched Roofing in the East Midlands. WNRTG was also successful in being appointed to deliver the SAP NVQ3 Pitched Heritage Roofing Course throughout the UK. All tenders will be for the next 3 years. The First Heritage Course will commence in July 2018. The location will be dependent on the locality of interested parties, and funding of £4,000 is available to CITB registered companies. Two trainers, Andy Rowlands and Richard Jordan are experts in this area and will deliver the programmes.

WNRTG is also approved to deliver Lead Sheet Training Association (LSTA) 5 day leadwelding and bossing training. The next course is due to run in Caerphilly on 30th May 2018. If there is interest they will be able to deliver the higher qualifications. They also work with various manufacturers to offer their BCP Training at Caerphilly and can tailor roofing training for your needs.
