The first External Wall Insulation (EWI) short course in Yorkshire in partnership with Leeds College of Building and West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges, supported by INCA, NIA and SWIGA. 

A short unaccredited course which upskills plasterers with multiple skills required for rendering is being co-designed by Leeds College of Building, sector trade bodies, INCA, NIA and leading companies.  

Funded by the Department for Education through West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC), this is the first such course to be provided in Yorkshire.

Following delivery of this course, Leeds College of Building will develop a Level 3 qualification in Insulation and Building Treatment.
