SCHOOL LEAVERS who want to engineer themselves a brilliant career can find out about top technical training on their doorstep, via a virtual open day on Tuesday, May 19 between 4pm and 6pm.
TTE Technical – the UK’s leading industry training centre and part of the Middlesbrough College Group – is offering students chance to see first hand how they could train for careers in sectors such as oil and gas, process, manufacturing and engineering.
TTE will virtually open its doors so that students and parents can step inside the internationally renowned training centre via their laptop, smartphone or mobile device.
It’s a unique opportunity to find out more about a whole host of technical training routes, including welding and fabrication, electrical engineering, chemical production, mechanical engineering, instrumentation, laboratory working and wind turbine specialisms.
In response to the current COVID situation TTE’s virtual open day will allow students to find out more about the world leading workshop training available on their doorstep.
Zoe Lewis, principal and chief executive of the Middlesbrough College Group, explained: “The present situation is causing a lot of uncertainty and anxiety for school leavers and their parents about what comes next.
“That’s why we’ve prepared new virtual ways to keep students and parents informed and show them the exciting range of ways they can train for high quality careers in industry – with skills that are in demand by employers.
“They’ll get to have one-on-one conversations via Live Chat with our expert teaching staff – many from industry backgrounds.
“They can also take a close look at our facilities, find out about entry requirements and what exactly they can expect to learn on different courses.”
Visitors can also find out more about a fantastic free travel offer for new TTE applicants, launching in September thanks to a partnership with regional bus and train operators.
Teachers from across TTE’s departments – many of them with years of real industry experience – have been delivering courses remotely during the lockdown period.
They are helping learners achieve industry-recognised qualifications at all levels 1 to 5, with many going on to full time apprenticeships with employers.
TTE’s learning is also underpinned by industry insider advice from teachers who have been there and know how to navigate those early career stages.
Zoe added: “We know it’s an unsettling time, but school leavers should know that we’re looking after their future.
“Our first class team is helping hundreds of learners with those vital first steps on the career ladder – working with high profile employers such as Quorn, EDF Energy, Sabic, CAT, CPI, Jacobs and Huntsman, to name just a few.
“During this challenging period, we’ve moved to online learning for our current students and employers can still access many of our commercial courses remotely online.
“We’re more ready than ever for September’s new starters, having invested in our facilities – keeping us at the forefront of industry and investing in the futures of our students.”
