Roofbase Plymouth Supports Apprentices Lewis Round and Jacob Blight

Roofbase Plymouth is proud to support two local apprentices, Lewis Round and Jacob Blight, who have reached the national finals of SkillBuild 2023.

The competition, which is held every two years, tests the skills of apprentices in a variety of trades, including roofing. Lewis and Jacob, who work for Stormforce Roofing, will be competing against the best apprentices in the country for the chance to represent the UK at the WorldSkills competition in Lyon, France, in 2024.

Roofbase Plymouth has donated slate cutters, snips, and chalk lines to help Lewis and Jacob prepare for the competition.

The competition is open to apprentices aged 16-24 and covers a wide range of construction trades, including bricklaying, carpentry, joinery, painting and decorating, plastering, and roofing.
