The Duke of Cambridge will carry out engagements in Nottinghamshire on Wednesday 26th February.

His Royal Highness will first visit Tarmac’s National Skills and Safety Park and will meet the company’s young apprentices to learn more about their roles and career ambitions before officially opening the centre. The Duke will then join a meeting with CEOs, managing directors and chairs of leading UK businesses to discuss joint opportunities for companies in the UK to support social mobility and to improve the options available to young people across British society.

Tarmac is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions business. With a 150-year heritage, the company directly employs around 7,000 people at more than 400 sites across the UK, supplying building materials such as asphalt, lime, ready-mix concrete and cement, to infrastructure projects across the country. The new Tarmac National Skills and Safety Park provides a dedicated training facility to equip people working in the construction sector with the skills needed to respond to demands in the UK.

Located at an active quarry near Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, the facility offers first-class, practical and classroom-based training for emerging industry talent – including apprentices, graduates and those retraining from other sectors.

The Duke of Cambridge’s second engagement will be announced once he has arrived at the venue.
