New Start In The Tiling Industry

Today's tiling industry is better than ever, why not lean into this market and take a tiling course at Able Skills?


Overall growth in this market is down to new residential housing being built constantly here in the UK.  There is a current demand for housing construction and this has seen a lot of trades become particularly profitable, in recent years.

Tiling is an industry that is on the rise, there has been an estimated 7% increase in UK floor and wall tile sales in recent years across the country. Additionally the trend for getting a professional in rather than attempting to DIY - is going to continue, which in turn is good for tradesmen. Overall there is an increase in the number of job opportunities there are in the workplace, this is a perfect time to get involved with this construction trade.

What is an NVQ?

An NVQ is a work-based qualification, to achieve this qualification the person must be assessed on their skills and knowledge about their particular trade, must show competency and ability. The reason it needs to be assessed at the workplace is that there needs to be evidence of the person’s ability and they must provide a portfolio of their previous work that will be judged against the average occupational standards.
