JCB and Lafarge donate to National Construction College

JCB and Lafarge are among a number of suppliers that have donated equipment to the National Construction College to help train students and apprentices in construction-related trades.

The college – which provides training for more than 30,000 people per year at six sites around the country – has received a variety of equipment ranging from plant machinery to pan tiles.

It represents the latest in a series of such donations from a number of suppliers including Redland Roof Tiles, Cupa Slates, Komatsu, Barford Dumpers, Caterpillar, MGF and Ground Force to help students on general construction and plant related courses.

Andy Walder, director of the college, said: “It is more important than ever, in the current economic climate, for businesses to invest in training – the generosity of our suppliers helps the College by unburdening our instructors, allowing them to work with top quality, new equipment or products, so we can train people to the highest standards with strong business support for what we do.”
