New Master Craftsman qualification to be presented

An award developed by City of London livery companies to recognise skills in the construction industry has been awarded to apprentices for the first time.

The Construction Liveries Group (CLG) in London has developed a Master Craftsman Certificate that aims to recognise excellence in achievement by craftsmen in the construction industry who have gained their skills through a vocational route.

The awards have now been extended to include apprentice and journeyman certificates to recognise the progression of people who follow a career based upon a specific craft skill.

The scheme is currently supported by a number of livery companies, including the Plumbers, Carpenters, Joiners & Ceilers, Lightmongers and the Paviors.

The first tranche of certificates were presented at a ceremony on 22 February 2011. The presentations were made at the Charterhouse by the Lord Mayor of London Alderman Michael Bear, who is a pavior, a chartered engineer and a champion of the construction industry.
