The Tile Association | Find Tilers, Stockists and Fitters


SkillBuild, delivered by CITB, is the largest multi-trade competition in the UK for construction trainees and apprentices.


A series of competitions sees the very best compete against each other to be crowned a winner in their chosen trade. Much like the Olympics, as each level of competition progresses, competitors will be tested not only on their technical abilities, but on their time management, character and commitment, and the competitions can help them build their own confidence, self-esteem and life skills.

For most up-to-date information about the following competitions, go to the SkillBuild website:

  • Regional Qualifiers
  • UK National Final
  • EuroSkills
  • WorldSkills
