Industry Engagement

Working with Industry

Both the Company and the Charity are proud to maintain their close relationship with the plastering and drylining industry.

The Charity offers bursaries and grants to apprentices and young students entering the industry, whilst the Company also recognises plastering industry stakeholders through the Master Plasterer Certificate Scheme and the Master Plasterer’s Register.
