The challenge is on for roofing apprentices, who are one day looking to run their own business, to come forward to convince us that they are the most likely to succeed!
Ten finalists will be invited, along with their course tutor, to attend the two-day final on the 27th and 28th June.
It’s a competition that will test several aspects of a well-rounded apprentice, not just skills on the roof. Finalists will receive professional coaching on all aspects of running a roofing business and will take part in “knowledge-sharing sessions” with roofing industry leaders, before battling it out to see who the Redland Apprentice of the Year 2017 will be!

Redland Mini Stonewold is the perfect solution against high winds in Orkney
With prevalent high winds in excess of 130mph on the Orkney Islands, a solution was required that could withstand these elements when it came to roofing a new facility for elderly and vulnerable members of the community. The BMI Redland Mini Stonewold Slate was chosen due to its strength, robustness and appearance of natural slate.
A new faster, safer, stronger and lighter metal tile solution from BMI
Drawing on its extensive experience in lightweight metal tiles,BMI – is setting new standards with the introduction of AeroDek. A roofing solution built for the future, AeroDek is faster, safer, stronger and lighter than traditional roof coverings; while replicating the high aesthetic of clay, concrete or slate in a tile guaranteed to last for 40 years.
