New College Lanarkshire has this year partnered with the UK’s leading sustainable building materials group to offer apprenticeships in Engineering.
Tarmac, led by Martin Riley - Senior Vice President and a former apprentice himself, currently employ a number of apprentices, two of whom attend New College Lanarkshire. Tarmac firmly believes that having apprentices is paramount to the growth and strategy of the business.
Leanne Taddei, Area HR Manager Scotland at Tarmac, said:
“Having employed two apprentices who attend New College Lanarkshire for the past six months, we have been really pleased with the professionalism and standards they adhere to.
"With one electrical and one mechanical apprentice, the pair help us with succession in our key maintenance roles, as well as giving our experienced colleagues the chance to share their knowledge and skills in training our apprentices.
"At Tarmac we are dedicated to fostering a culture of safety first, production second and are proud to be embedding this with our apprentices, whilst watching them develop a passion for the industry.
"We want our apprentices to get the best experience from our apprenticeship programme and be ambitious, here we will build their career. As they embark on their learning journey we encourage them to ask questions, be inquisitive and discuss what they have learnt with their mentor onsite. In collaboration with the College, they will simultaneously gain the professional qualification and learn on the job throughout the programme to prepare them for their future here at Tarmac.
"Apprenticeships are vital to the continuing success of Tarmac.”
