What is the Competitor Selection Programme

The Competitor Selection Programme previously known as the College Inter Campus Competition (CICC) was introduced in 2010 with the principal aim of increasing the number of construction apprentices participating in SkillBuild and to give the apprentices an opportunity to test their skills against their peers throughout the Province.

The programme is an excellent example of SkillBuild's partnership with the six Regional Colleges and training providers, with each of the establishment hosting the one day competition each January covering twelve construction trade areas.

The competition is now well established and recognised across the College Network as the route to gain entry into the annual SkillBuild Regional Final held each spring. Medal winning participants at the Skillbuild Regional Final can in most but not all areas progress to Skillbuild UK Finals later in the calendar year.
