The GGF is delighted to support a new campaign launched by GQA Qualifications with the aim of attracting the best young talent to the fenestration industry.
Like many other sectors in construction, the fenestration industry is feeling the effects of the skills gap with not enough new young people joining it.
“Building Our Skills in Fenestration” is a campaign designed by GQA Qualifications to attract the best new young talent to the many fields within fenestration, by offering industry-based qualifications and learning which will serve them for life, complete with mapped out career paths and visible rewards. The campaign aims to attract young people to make fenestration their career of choice.
On the GGF’s commitment to support the campaign, Shaun McAllister, GGF Managing Director commented:
“This kind of campaign is long overdue as more and more companies find it difficult to recruit young people into the glass and glazing industry. The GGF is delighted to support the campaign and urges all companies in the industry to get behind it.”
“It is essential the industry develops and provides the platforms for many young people to train and learn the skills that will ensure we maintain the highest standards in manufacturing and installation.”
