£18k training prize up for grabs for building trades superstar

The hunt is on for Britain’s first building trades entrepreneur superstar in plumbing, heating or electrics. The competition from Logic4Training is inspired by BBC’s The Apprentice. At the end of the process, one candidate will receive substantial support to start their own business – including a website, Checkatrade membership, and a lifetime of training in plumbing, heating, or electrics. More than £18,000 of accredited trades training courses is up for grabs.

To win, candidates will have to beat their peers in a challenging process that includes a task on social media, and a face-to-face boardroom interview with Logic4training’s founder and managing director Kevin Budd and fellow judges.

The competition aims to help highlight the plumbing, electrics, and heating trades as an exciting career option. Kevin Budd says: “The search is on for the first tradesperson entrepreneur superstar. This really is an incredible opportunity for a young person or career-changer to set themselves up as a rising star in plumbing, heating, or electrics.

“With the building trades struggling to recruit skilled workers, we are hoping to show people that trade careers can be very rewarding, exciting, and lucrative.”

Who can apply?
The competition is open those aged 18 and over who want a career in the building services sector. It’s suitable for people with no previous experience, such as college leavers or career changers. Logic4training has centres in Northolt, Basildon, Luton, and Sittingbourne, so the winner must be able to commute easily to one of these locations.

Kevin adds: “What Logic4training is looking for is someone with drive, ambition and a desire to make a name for themselves. The winner will be savvy on social media and not shy in front of a camera. They’ll be up for having their training journey documented and will be keen to share their own experience of the courses they undertake to help illustrate how exciting working in the building’s trades can be.

“This truly is a life-changing opportunity that will set someone up on a rewarding career path in an industry that will always be in demand.”
