FIS has confirmed the details of a nationwide rollout of its BuildBack Programme following the successful Midlands-based cohort in March.

As a key element of the trade association’s Fit-Out Futures strategy, BuildBack puts job seekers through two weeks of college drylining training followed by two weeks of on-site work experience with an employer. Those who secure full-time employment with an employer will have their fees paid for ongoing training to NVQ Level 2 in drylining at no cost to them or the employer. This will equip them with the skills, competencies and qualification required to pursue a career in drylining.

The confirmed nationwide FIS BuildBack programme will consist of a series of employer open days, enabling employers to meet with drylining trainees and programme partners, see the college facilities and find out more about how BuildBack can benefit their business.

Partner colleges will host BuildBack open days as follows: Sheffield (9 May); South and City Birmingham (31 May); Wigan and Leigh (Greater Manchester Colleges Group) (7 June); NPTC Group of Colleges (14 June); Lewisham Southwark (20 June); Astins (21 June); Colchester (22 June); and Silver Trowel (5 July).
