TTE holds open evenings for school leavers

The TTE Technical Training Group is offering school leavers an opportunity to take their first steps towards a career in engineering by holding a number of open evening events in February.

Middlesbrough-based TTE, which is one of the UK’s largest apprenticeship training organisations for the engineering, manufacturing, oil & gas and process sectors, is inviting students on Tuesday 5 and Thursday 7 February to discuss the training opportunities available at TTE.

TTE provides school leavers with practical training, technical skills, the ability to learn and earn and the opportunity to enjoy a career in industry through its employer-sponsored Apprenticeships programmes and Engineering and Process Pathways.

TTE has strong links with over 100 local employers in industry, which sponsor the organisation’s apprentices. These companies are keen to support students throughout their training and young people expecting to achieve English, Maths and Science GCSEs at grades A to C are invited to apply for an employer-sponsored apprenticeship.

Sponsored apprentices spend two years working towards respected vocational and technical qualifications at TTE’s training centre in South Bank, spending a large proportion of their time in its uniquely equipped workshops.

There is then the potential for a further two years spent working at sponsoring companies’ premises, as Advanced Level Apprentices, to earn additional vocational qualifications and, most importantly, gain hands-on experience working in an industry environment as part of a skilled workforce.

TTE’s Engineering and Process Pathways, which are available in a selection of trades, including engineering disciplines, warehousing & building services and fabrication & welding, provides young people aged between 16 and 18 with the chance to study for Diplomas between Level 1 and 3.

The Engineering and Process Pathways, which help students gain practical experience in a range of engineering disciplines, involve students spending two years at TTE’s training centre to develop a range of practical skills and competencies.

In addition, the Pathways support students’ chances of moving on to an Advanced Level Apprenticeship sponsored by an employer from the oil & gas, process, manufacturing and engineering sectors.

Steve Grant, Managing Director of The TTE Technical Training Group, said: “At a time when young people are considering their career and education options, these open evenings will provide them with the opportunity to discover the path an engineering route can take them.

“TTE currently has more than 600 young people going through various stages of training with the aim of gaining the skills and qualifications that will give them a springboard into a career in industry.

“These young people are attractive to employers that have to meet future skills requirements and understand the benefits investing in the development of apprentices can bring.

“I hope that the students who visit our open evenings will be inspired by the opportunities we offer and the exciting opportunities that careers in engineering can deliver.”

The Open Evenings take place on 5 and 7 February at TTE in South Bank, Middlesbrough between 5pm and 8pm. Places can be booked by calling Jenny at TTE on 01642 770310.
