Students considering future with Tarmac after visiting Mancetter

A group of future engineers has been left impressed by the breadth of roles available and the facilities at Mancetter Quarry.

Year 13 students from the WMG Academy for Young Engineers visited the site to witness the end-to-end processes, from quarry face to finished product.

The trip was organised by Contracting for Balfour Beatty Living Places to promote closer links to the local Warwickshire community.

Following the trip to the Warwickshire site, some of the budding engineers are now considering joining the industry when they leave full-time education.

Joe Jacklin, WMG Academy Technician for Engineering, said: “The students were in absolute awe of the facilities and scale of the site you have, and a few students have said they wish to look further into careers in the industry.”

Ewart Birkett, said: “The students were very impressed with the facility at Mancetter and were amazed at the opportunities with the wider Tarmac business as well as at Mancetter.”
