Tarmac is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions business – and it has recently developed a skills centre which provides dedicated training to those hoping to embark on careers in the industry.
It helps the company with everything from training apprentices, graduates and those hoping for a smooth transition into the sector.
Later that day, he visited The Beacon – a day centre which gives support to the homeless and vulnerable people – where he spoke with service users.
Prince William’s solo engagements come a day after he and wife Kate Middleton made a joint appearance at the theatre in London last night.
