Two Tarmac trainees have been recognised by industry experts at the prestigious Civil Engineering Contractors Association Wales Annual Dinner, for their expertise
Elliot Morris, Apprentice Supervisor, was runner up in the Most Promising Apprentice category, with Rhys Roberts, Trainee Supervisor, was highly commended in the Most Promising Trainee Civil Engineer (Non-Graduate) award.
“I had planned on going to university, but I became a Tarmac apprentice because getting the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the business and progress through the company while still earning was so appealing,” said Elliot, who is completing a BTEC Level 3 in Construction and Built Environment at Coleg Gwent in Pontypool while working at a Tarmac office near Cardiff.
Rhys, who has now completed his apprenticeship and is working towards a Higher National Certificate in Civil Engineering at Coleg Gwent, added: “Being an apprentice and trainee at Tarmac has been great. The business has also approved me to study Road Surfacing at the University of Derby, which will be of huge benefit.”
50 new apprenticeships will be created by Tarmac in 2016 as part of the company’s apprenticeship scheme, including nine higher apprenticeships.
