Sandtoft partners with Telford College to help next generation of roofers

Sandtoft Roof Tiles is continuing to support the next generation of roofers by providing over 8,000 building materials, including its PV48 solar roofing system, free of charge to Telford College in Edinburgh.

The college, established in 1968, offers further education and training on a wide range of subjects, including professional development awards and advanced certificates in roofing, slating and tiling. The courses offer students a range of training options from foundation skills through to advanced and specialist roofing practices.

Bob Coutts, roofing lecturer at Telford College, said: “All of our courses are designed to provide students with the very best training and technical knowledge ahead of their careers in the construction and roofing industries. With the rate of innovation in the roofing industry, it’s very important that our students develop their skills using the best and latest materials. In order to do this effectively, we rely on the support and generosity of manufacturers like Sandtoft and the wider roofing community.

“Sandtoft meets our needs perfectly, providing the latest roof tiles as well as training and expert guidance in fitting innovative products such as their PV48 solar roofing solution.”

Simon Dixon, training manager at Sandtoft, added: “The roofing industry has suffered from a skills shortage, so it’s vitally important that we focus on supporting our next generation of roofers. Telford College does a fantastic job of teaching young people a broad mix of roofing skills and we’re delighted to be able to supply them with the materials they need.”
