Working in partnership with colleges nationwide, Tarmac’s Blue Circle brand has launched the Blue Circle Excellence College Programme.
Intended to support students’ understanding of cement, concrete, mortar and lime, the programme includes four new E-learning modules and works as part of an initiative to equip trade students with materials to broaden their product knowledge and industry expertise.
The new portal is geared towards professional development and will be the go-to resource for students wanting to make informed decisions on packed cement after they graduate. Serving as a strong indication of Tarmac’s commitment to developing the skills of people working within the construction industry.
Discussing the initiative, Gareth Osborne, senior marketing manager at Tarmac Cement said: “With the new learning portal our goal is to support the next generation of tradespeople and help bridge the gap between education and industry; broadening their knowledge of the latest and most innovative products in the sector.”
Following feedback from colleges, Tarmac has also made further materials available, including educational posters, banners and a ‘Builders Guide to Cement’ to help refresh learning areas.
This is the latest element of Tarmac's wide range of professional development and training initiatives, aimed at creating a highly skilled pool of talent coming into the industry.
