Annual Training Awards

The Plaisterers’ Training Awards recognise the highest standards of achievement in training and education within the UK plastering trade.

Since their introduction in 2001 the Awards have grown significantly in content and importance. The 2008 awards were enhanced by the addition of The John G Robinson Trophy, presented to the best overall performing college from the regions, together with a cheque for £1,500.

Entries are invited for two different award categories each fully reflecting crucial aspects of training, education and 
life-long learning that has now become a priority focus within 
the British construction industry.
