Co-founded by the Contract Flooring Association (CFA) and the National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers (NICF) to provide specialist training for the floorcovering industry, FITA is an independent, not-for-profit organisation — by industry, for industry. We have two specialist training centres at Loughborough and Kirkcaldy with fully equipped practical and lecture areas.
With the support of Webs Training Ltd, a leading training provider based in Nottingham, FITA’s training and delivery options at the centre include apprenticeship delivery in the East Midlands for prospective employers. FITA is working with Webs to ensure that this delivery sits alongside the best in the country, and we could not think of a better main provider to be working with.
Apprentices work on developing new skills knowledge and behaviours with the support of their employers. Over the three year apprenticeship they spend blocks of time at FITA alongside working with their employer to build the necessary attributes a floorlayer needs to fit floors to the highest standard. Apprentices have access to materials, tools and resources courtesy of our fantastic sponsors, and these enable them to learn and develop their talents in an environment where they can concentrate and hone their skills before going back to their employer to build on those skills further in real site environments.
