About the event

The Flooring Industry Training Association (FITA) will be opening its doors to the public during Open Doors week to showcase the fantastic career opportunities with the floorlaying sector.

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 also 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.

The event will allow potential school leavers to visit and see just what is involved in becoming a floorlayer and speak to industry professionals and those that have completed training within our sector and are now fully fledged floorlayers in their own right.


Visitors will have the opportunity to get hands on and experience first hand just what a floorlayers day to day activities include. This includes having a go at installing floors, presentations on just how fantastic our sector is and career pathway opportunities.

Under the watchful eye of industry professionals’ visitors can experience first-hand the role of a floorlayer, use floorlaying tools and equipment and get to grips with materials and products floorlayers install every day.

This will be an interactive event with lots of participation and we cannot wait to see you!
