MIA again sponsors Guild of Bricklayers Annual Skills Competition

Mortar Industry Association (MIA ) has agreed to sponsor the 2018 Guild of Bricklayers annual skills competition for industry trainees. This will be the fourth year MIA has supported the guild.

It will do so by supplying mortar through its producer members for all competition stages. 

The guild runs nine regional competitions for brick laying trainees studying  at accredited colleges. Students compete in junior and senior categories and are given up to six hours to construct a brickwork model from drawings supplied. The work is marked by industry judges and winning competitors from each heat go forward to compete in the national finals to be held on 27 June 2018 at Brooklands College, Weybridge, Surrey.

MIA manager, Mick Russell, said:

‘We are determined to support youngsters learning their trade to become the skilled bricklayers of the future. We need them to enable us achieve the volume of new home building we so badly need in the UK. More power to the Guild of Bricklayers in its efforts to maintain the highest standards.’
