Heating and plumbing apprentices at Leeds College of Building are getting hands on experience using industry standard plumbing and heating components thanks to Altecnic's donation of product.

The company provided 15mm and 22mm unvented inlet composite valves, tundishes and handy tool boxes for the students.

Says Paul Guise, Curriculum manager for plumbing apprentices: "The donation means that our students can install commission and adjust a mixing valve giving them a practical and technical understanding of its purpose and operation. Altecnic have invested in the future of our industry in a very real and practical way."

Says Gary Perry, managing director at Altecnic: "It is vital that we attract more young people into plumbing and heating and as a company we have always supported the excellent work that colleges do with apprentices. By encouraging students to use industry standard high quality product from day one we are setting the foundations for well specified and installed systems of the future."

Leeds college of Building is the only FE college in the UK dedicated to construction and the built environment. The Department of Sustainable Building Services provides education and training to all who work in the building services engineering sector. It provides courses for full and part time students and apprenticeships.
