Sun, 2001-07-08 01:00

The College has just agreed an exclusive deal with RUBI who will sponsor the wall and floor tiling department at The Technical Academy, in Peterlee, County Durham.

The Technical Academy, which is run by East Durham College, is a leading training provider delivering training to students and building professionals in a range of trades including tiling, plastering, fitted interiors and gas and electric.

This new initiative will enable tiler trainees at the Academy to benefit from using the latest tiling tools and equipment supplied by RUBI - the market leader in tiling tools and materials.

The initiative will also help provide specialist training development for professional tilers and contractors on the latest new products and practices within the industry.

Rob Hutchinson, the Education Manager at the Academy, said: “This sponsorship will enable our student to try out first-hand specialist tools and equipment not normally available for them to use. Importantly, this will help give them extra confidence when they eventually go out into industry and come across Rubi products.”

The Technical Academy provides construction training for all ages, from 16 year olds plus, and in the area of tiling focuses predominantly on Level 2 Diplomas in Wall & Floor Tiling.
