TTE offer 70 young people career in industry

The TTE Technical Training Group has secured new funding to offer 70 young people on Teesside the chance to take the first steps towards a career in industry.

The TTE Pathway provides the opportunity to gain an industry-recognised Level 1, 2 or 3 Diploma and invaluable practical experience. It is open to students of all academic levels.

Available in six trade disciplines including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, process operation and warehousing, the TTE Pathway provides significant workshop-based training to develop students with the core skills required by employers.

Most significantly, successfully completing the Pathway will support students’ chances of progressing on to an Advanced Level Apprenticeship sponsored by an employer from the oil & gas, process, manufacturing and engineering sectors. TTE works closely with more than 200 local employers that support apprenticeship training.

To date a large proportion of students who have completed a TTE Pathway have gone on to secure a place on an apprenticeship programme.

Open to those with a variety of existing skill levels and qualifications, the TTE Pathway utilises TTE’s vast experience in technical training to deliver a strong foundation for trainees’ future skills development.

From its fully-equipped, industry-standard training centre in South Bank, Middlesbrough, in addition to its Pathway and Apprenticeship programmes, TTE provides industry-specific technical training for UK and international commercial businesses in the oil and gas, process, manufacturing and engineering sectors.

As a charity with ‘not-for-profit’ status, TTE re-invests surpluses from its commercial activities in the development of its innovative Pathway and Advanced Level Apprenticeship programmes and facilities.

Students who secure a place on the TTE Pathway take part in a range of practical, workshop-based training modules that utilises TTE’s high specification industrial equipment. Delivered by experienced technical training professionals with industry backgrounds, the training is supported by industrial placements with regional employers.

Students also receive free equipment and materials to support their training as well as subsidised meals and free safety clothing.

Steve Grant, Managing Director of The TTE Technical Training Group, said: “The growing interest in engineering, process and warehousing training programmes are attracting a much broader range of applicants, which is fantastic news for employers and industry.

“We are keen that our programmes are inclusive and provide opportunities for young people of all skills levels who can access our industry-standard training facilities.

“Creating places for 70 local young people on our TTE Pathway goes to the heart of our ambition to enable young people to gain skills and qualifications, no matter what their GCSE results, that can help them take an important step towards potentially securing employment in industry.”
