We’re proud to announce an exciting new sponsorship with British Gypsum, the UK’s leading manufacturer of interior lining systems and Weber - an innovative market leader in external finishes and render products.

Weber and British Gypsum recently met with the team and were inspired by the plastering facilities offered at our training centre, and praised our continued success in working with thousands of businesses to recruit new apprentices and trainees for their organisations.

This is excellent news for our learners, staff and employers. The sponsorship will provide our learners with opportunities to work with new, innovative materials before they hit the market, giving them a competitive edge over other apprentices. As part of the sponsorship, our apprentices will also have the chance to go on site visits and take part in masterclasses in product application which will be delivered by leading experts.

Students will be supplied with exciting new products, exposing them to innovation and best practice within the industry. 

Jayne Worthington, Managing Director of GC Education & Skills said: “The sponsorship is excellent and exciting news. Weber and British Gypsum have a strong commitment to the discipline of interior and exterior finishes, and recognise the importance of upskilling young people so they can succeed in the world of plastering. They choose their sponsorships wisely and only work with businesses who can demonstrate commitment to giving learners better life chances – which is testament to the work we do here at GC Education & Skills.”

Thank you to British Gypsum for this amazing opportunity – both our staff and learners are looking forward to all the benefits that the sponsorship brings.
