FloorSkills plan to go ahead and run the LVT Floorlayer of the year comp 2021. We hope that Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted by next year, however, if they are not, we will run the competition over multiple heats. With a final that will meet Covid-19 restrictions in place, providing we are not in full lockdown. FloorSkills can easily run a final far exceeding the current Covid-19 rules, such as minimum 2 meters apart. However, this will be a UK competition only and not the European comp we have run in the past due to this.

There will be 4 stages to the competition –

  • Expression of interest in entering the competition through the FloorSkills website contact form -
  • Online knowledge test (25 questions) along with 10 photos of previous work to be uploaded. These will then be marked with pictures judged. Up to 16 installers will go through to the Practical Heats.
  • Practical Heat (multiple dates available to attend) where the installers will have to carry out subfloor prep and install a design floor to a pre-planned design supplied by FloorSkills. Only 8 installers will carry on to the final.
  • The Final which is another practical heat consisting of a design floor laid to a pre-planned design supplied by FloorSkills along with a separate custom design of the installer’s choice. Both the main design floor and the custom design will both be scored to find the overall winner. However, a separate prize will also be awarded for a best overall custom design. Only 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be announced.

The competition will be judged by a mixture of FloorSkills judges along with guest judges who will all score each installer separately, with one separate judge who will only score the installers if there is a tie.
Due to the mixture of judges we are using, we are allowing everyone to enter the competition. There are no restrictions on who they are, where they work or have previously worked including training centres and manufacturers.

The competition is now open, so please express your interest through the FloorSkills website contact us page - Clearly add in the description “you would like to enter the competition”. The closing date for entrants will be January 10th 2021
