TTE is inviting aspiring engineers in Year 11 from across the Tees Valley to open evenings in November that will give them an insight into the industry and the opportunities that exist for young people.
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 8 and 10 November to come and discuss the training available at TTE and where it can lead.
Those who attend will be provided with an in-depth introduction to the training programmes available at TTE, take a tour of its industry-standard facilities and also have the opportunity to chat with its expert trainers, who have delivered programmes to engineers at leading oil & gas companies, including BP and Marathon Oil.
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 Study Programmes.
TTE has strong links with more than 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.
Study programme learners 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 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 Study Programmes, which are available in a selection of trades, including engineering and process disciplines, provide young people aged between 16 and 18 with the chance to study for Diplomas at Level 2 and 3.
The Engineering and Process Study Programmes, which help students gain practical experience in a range of engineering disciplines, involve students spending up to two years at TTE’s training centre to develop a range of practical skills and competencies.
In addition, the Study Programmes support students’ chances of moving on to an Apprenticeship sponsored by an employer from the oil & gas, process, manufacturing and engineering sectors.
Steve Grant, Managing Director at TTE, said: “The Tees Valley has been providing world-class engineers for decades and we’re now looking to find our next cohort of students to carry on this proud tradition.
“Every year we welcome around 300 school leavers that go on to enjoy long and rewarding careers in their chosen industry and I would encourage any Year 11 students that are interested in following in their footsteps to come along to one of our open events and find out more.”
The Career Events will take place on 8 and 10 November between 5-7pm at TTE, Middlesbrough Road East, South Bank, Middlesbrough, TS6 6TZ. To book a place at one of the events please contact 01642 770337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
