Scott Elsmore, 20, has been awarded silver at the UK final of SkillBuild – Britain’s biggest construction skills competition.
Scott, who studied plastering at New College Nottingham (ncn), reached the final after competing in the East Midlands regional heat held at ncn Basford Hall earlier this year.
He’s now in the running to represent the UK in the next WorldSkills competition in Leipzig, Germany in 2013.
As the largest multi-trade competition in the UK, SkillBuild covers a wide range of crafts including bricklaying, carpentry, painting and decorating, plastering, roofing, and tiling.
NCN Head of Faculty for Construction, Shaun Hunt, said: “Scott has gone from strength to strength since starting at ncn.
“He has completed his Plastering Diploma Level 2 and 3 with us and is now training to become a Construction Lecturer whilst employed as a Technician at our Basford Hall campus.
“It’s wonderful to see Scott passing on his skills and experience to our current students.”
