MIA continues Sponsorship of Guild of Bricklayers Annual Skills Competition
The Mortar Industry Association (MIA) this year is again sponsoring the Guild of Bricklayers annual skills competition for industry trainees.
MIA manager, Mick Russell, said: ‘This is the fifth year we have supported the guild by supplying mortar through our members for all competition stages. We badly need a future skilled workforce and we are pleased to be able to play a part in stimulating interest amongst young bricklayers.’
The guild runs nine regional competitions for brick laying trainees studying at accredited colleges. Students, in junior and senior categories, are given up to six hours to construct a brickwork model from drawings supplied. Industry judges mark the work and winning competitors from each heat go forward to compete in the national finals. This year the College of Liverpool is venue for the finals to be held on 20 June.
