Committed to training and improving skills

Saint-Gobain is committed to supporting our customers to develop their skills.

Improving the skills of those working in construction is critical to creating better buildings, and essential for the future of our industry.  It is also critical that we play our part in helping to encourage a new generation of trained, digitally aware, diverse young people to enter the industry.


We have a passion for improving the training and support available to the industry. We want skilled tradespeople with the know-how to create high-performing buildings, using modern methods of construction that improve comfort, wellbeing and daily life for occupants.

Each year we are active in many ways to provide practical training, support young people in our industry and encourage SMEs to grow.
