TTE introduces discounted training programmes to support reskilling of SSI workers

Posted 22nd October 2015 By TTE Press Office

The TTE Technical Training Group has unveiled a suite of discounted training programmes for workers and contractors affected by the closure of the SSI steel works.

The South Bank-based organisation, which is a registered charity, has been supporting the development of Teesside’s industrial workforce for 25 years through the delivery of apprenticeships and upskilling and reskilling of technicians and engineers for sectors including manufacturing, oil and gas, petrochemical and process.

The discounted scheduled training programmes, which are available to former SSI employees and contractors, cover a range of disciplines including Electrical Engineering and Electrical Safety, Mechanical Engineering, Rigging and Slinging, and Safety Passport. TTE is also offering discounts on a suite of CompEx programmes

In addition, TTE is offering advice and support for individuals needing to update their technical CVs.

Each programme is delivered at TTE’s uniquely-equipped specialist training centre, which is utilised for the skills development of UK and international technicians.

As an established international technical training provider working with multinational companies such as BP, TATA, Shell, SABIC, Northumbrian Water and Lucite, TTE is experienced in supporting the skills development of technicians entering new industry sectors.

TTE has a strong track record of delivering the high-quality technical training and providing the support that people need to get back into employment or change career. Practical training is provided underpinned by internationally-respected UK vocational qualifications.

Steve Grant, Managing Director of The TTE Technical Training Group, said: ‘One of the strengths of Teesside’s skilled workforce is its ability to adapt to the changing industrial landscape. TTE is well-positioned to support this transition as we have been at the heart of Teesside industry for the last 25 years and we are experienced at providing engineers and technicians with new skills that enables them to embark on a complementary, but new career path.’

‘TTE has a long association with the steel industry, having been established as a joint venture between British Steel and ICI in 1990, and we are very keen to support those affected by the closure of SSI. There are other established and emerging industries, such as the process sector and offshore renewables, which will benefit greatly from the commitment and work ethic of former SSI workers, who may require new competencies and qualifications to enter these sectors.’
