LASC to Host Roofing Open Day

19th August 2022

To celebrate the launch of the latest addition to our roofing apprenticeship portfolio, we’re holding a roofing open day at the London Academy of Sustainable Construction on Thursday 15 September.

The event promises to be an excellent networking event for roofing employers, who will be given the opportunity to tour our facility and meet our specialist team of roofing instructors, as well as learning about what we can offer and how the roofing apprenticeship scheme works.

Speaking of the event, Sara Calvo, SIMIAN’s Senior Business Development Manager for the south east region said:

“We’re really looking forward to meeting roofing employers from around the London area. The fact that we can now deliver apprenticeships in roof slating and tiling, and waterproof membranes is great news for the roofing industry generally, but also for residents of Waltham Forest who are looking to get in to well-paid and long-term employment.

There is a growing feeling in the industry that the traditional reliance on assessment as the primary method of achieving competence to install roofs, is not serving the industry as well as it might, so we’re certain that these additions will be very welcome across the industry. Slating and tiling are just two disciplines that we are delivering, but industrial cladding and roof sheeter and cladder are also in the pipeline.

We’ll be showcasing our specialist construction virtual reality training packages and providing breakfast on the day, so that alone has got to be worth a few hours of anyone’s time.”

 Registration for the event, which will run between 9.45 am and 1pm, can be made via Sara at or by calling her on 07871 764076.
