We’re proud to announce that we have partnered with Leeds College of Building (LCB), to support the tiling students in the growth of their practical skills.
Our Birstall bathroom showroom is donating materials and providing careers advice to the college’s tiling pupils.
Over the past three months, our manager, James, has given tonnes of tiles to the college, which are used within lessons for teaching the latest skills and application techniques used in tiling, within both industrial and residential settings.
Students have also been invited into store, to get a holistic view of the customer buying experience, and to understand the different types and trends of tiles available. A number of pupils have also opened trade accounts with Easy Bathrooms.
Mark Howroyd, curriculum manager for wall and floor tiling, said: “I visited Easy Bathrooms to look at options for my own bathroom, but when I saw the scope of their operations – and the quality of their products – I got talking to James, the manager. He suggested that they would be able to help out, by donating tiles – and the relationship has grown from there.
“Our students have since been to the store, and they’ll be invited back on numerous occasions, to future trade days. It helps to open their eyes to the industry, beyond the core skills that we teach them – we’re very grateful for Easy Bathrooms’ support.”
