Dunlop helps pave the way for two local students

Dunlop Adhesives, specialist manufacturer of tile adhesives, grouts, finishing and ancillary products, kick started the New Year by providing two local students from South Staffordshire College with the opportunity to embark on a four-day tiling training course. The course, which took place in January, was designed to help apprentice builders diversify their skills and improve their offering to potential employers. 

  • James Pugh and Ryan Schubert, who both attend the College’s Lichfield Campus, attended the four-day practical course held at Dunlop’s head office in Stoke-on-Trent
  • The apprentice builders were taught all the skills necessary to ensure they left feeling confident enough to complete the whole job, from start to finish
  • Dunlop’s technical experts also provided the apprentices with handy industry hints and tips, as well as access to advice and help in the future


South Staffordshire College student, Ryan Schubert, said:

The four-day tiling training course was extremely informative as well as fun. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, which made it very easy to take on board all the great advice.

James Pugh also commented:

The course has proven to be very fun, incredibly informative and an all-round great experience. This was my first taste of trade-based work and I enjoyed every moment. The training materials were also very informative and easy to understand.

Debi Boulton, Brand Manager at Dunlop, commented:

The tiling training course was a great success. James and Ryan both commented on how relevant the skills taught were and how they felt much more confident fixing tiles. It was great for us to be able to support the local students and offer apprentices the chance to diversify their skills and pick up handy hints and tips to help them on their way.
