This Saturday 20 June the best apprentices from across the country put their skills on the tools to the test in the first step of their quest to become the Registered Master Builders CARTERS 2020 Apprentice of the Year.


Come along and show your support and cheer on the men and women who are brave enough to test and challenge themselves, and who are the future our industry – they would love your support.

The practical’s kick off at 9am and run for two hours and are a fun and exciting event and a great way to show off the benefits of a building career.
