Who Are We ?

The South West Roofing Training Group (SWRTG) was established in 1996 to provide specialist training for companies working specifically in the roofing industry. It was initially managed by CITB but now operates as an independent grant aided organisation, co-ordinating training needs and the delivery of roof training for our members. This can range from Health & Safety courses to technical upskilling and management, development training. As an accredited assessment centre for CSkills (CITB), we are able to deliver Specialist Apprenticeship Programmes (SAPs) and NVQ assessment to level 3. We are members of the Roofing Industry Alliance (RIA) and work in close association with the Institute of Roofing.

The Team

The SWRTG is managed by an industry led Group Committee, consisting of various individuals with a background in roofing including a number of employers. This ensures that The Group’s operations reflect the needs of the construction industry
