The existing training manual will be revised and updated to incorporate all revised and new training content.

End of project summary

After assessing 400 BCP Stage 1 trainees, 243 candidates were selected for Stage 2 of the programme. Assessors mapped their training needs and skills required to achieve a formal metal roofing qualification, thus enhancing the sector's access to training knowledge and participation.

Additionally, the group produced the 3rd edition of the Guide to Good Practice in the Metal Roofing and Cladding sector, alongside the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors.
