TTE apprentices go online to showcase skills

Apprentices at TTE Technical training Group have found an innovative way to promote their skills to new employers.

Students aged between 16 and 18 and working towards their NVQ qualifications at TTE’s trading centre in South Bank Middlesbrough have taken to YouTube to illustrate their experiences in the workplace.

The video, which can be viewed here http://youtu.be/DsaJxvuH99Y has been sent to employers across the region, and highlights the apprentice’s passion for engineering and ambitions for the future, as well as their practical skills.

Steve Grant, Managing Director of The TTE Technical Training Group, said: “TTE has an excellent reputation with employers for delivering skilled, enthusiastic apprentices who are ready to enter the workplace. Competition for jobs and sponsorship has increased, which has led to our students using YouTube to showcase themselves to potential sponsors.”

“The video is just a taste of the quality young people we have at TTE who are earning the skills, qualifications and abilities to meet the skills requirements of industry and skills shortages facing many sectors, not only on Teesside and in the North East, but around the world.”

Apprentices at TTE spend two years as part of their sponsoring company’s workforce, which allows them to gain on-site experience and further qualifications. At the end of the period they are all “industry-ready” for the workplace.
