Joiners work with timber to construct doors, windows, fitted furniture and other permanent fixtures within buildings.
In this competition, competitors have to complete a specific project designed to challenge their ability to follow detailed instructions, produce accurate and neat work outputs, be economical with materials while working to strict timescales – all essential requirements for today’s construction industry. The competitor will be marked on Health & Safety.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, Skills Competitions for Construction/Building Services will take on a new format for this academic year. The proposals are as follows:
• Skills competitions to take place at the organisations own premises during a two-week window in January / February 2021. The idea is that competitors will attend their place of study on their normal day and will participate in a skills competition as opposed to their timetabled sessions.
• Each participating organisation will receive an allocation of funding to support the purchase of materials.
• Tutors will be asked to judge their competitors and rank in order. (Skills competition judges have agreed to provide CPD training to tutors prior to the competitions)
• Organisations will be asked to email their mark sheets for the top 3 competitors along with photographic evidence/short video of the completion task to a designated address at NPTC Group.
