British Cement Association (now part of the Mineral Products Association)
A UK based trade association, with a comprehensive website, but remember that they are there to represent their members' interests.
The Concrete Centre
Another arm of the MPA, this time concerned with concrete rather than cement. Another comprehensive website, with some detailed teaching material.
