UltraCrete partners with Salford City College

UltraCrete have announced their partnership with Salford City College Group, which
will see all students working towards their Highways Maintenance Skilled Operative Apprenticeship become UCARS Accredited.

UltraCrete are passionate about training and have been advocates and supporters of
providing opportunities for enhanced learning and education for many years. With that in
mind, in 2022 they launched their industry-leading accreditation scheme UCARS – a
systematic training guide to installing high specification ironwork reinstatement materials.
On partnering with Salford City College Group, Richard Moss, Head of Civils at Instarmac,
commented: “Educating the industry is a big passion of mine, and the entire UltraCrete team.
UCARS has been such a triumph for the highways sector, and I couldn’t be prouder to join
forces with Salford City College Group and support their apprentices on next stage of their
learning journey. Students beginning their highway maintenance career will learn from outset
the importance of using approved materials in the correct way, resulting in fewer failures and
increased productivity. It’s a win for everyone.”

Allan Milne, Director of Apprenticeships and Employer Engagement at Salford City College
also remarked: “Salford City College Group are incredibly proud of the relationship we have
with industry partners. They enhance and are at the heart of our curriculum, UltraCrete are a
great example of this, and we look forward to working with them as one of our key Highway
Maintenance Academy partners.”
