Nick Gibb MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, visited South Coast Roof Training Ltd last week and was shown the wide variety of roof training courses that are carried out.
He also watched the candidates on the Heritage Skills NVQ Level 3 Diploma (SAP) course, as they sized, cut and laid natural slates in various patterns, while other examples of traditional roofing methods using clay tiles and stone slates, which had been previously covered on the course, were also on display.
“The country is crying out for people with the skills to ensure our construction industry continues to provide a quality service. Training is key to this and companies like South Coast Roof Training Ltd, based in Littlehampton, enable people to acquire these skills from experienced and qualified tutors who have been in the roofing industry for many years. I hope they continue to thrive, providing ever more opportunities for people to access training in the roofing industry.” Nick Gibb MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton
