TTE to open its doors to aspiring engineers at November open events

Posted 13th October 2017 By TTE Press Office


TTE is inviting hopeful engineers in Year 11 from across the Tees Valley to open evenings that will give them an insight into the industry and the opportunities that exist for young people.

As the only Ofsted Grade 2 rated engineering and process training provider in Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, TTE is one of the UK’s largest apprenticeship training organisations for the engineering, manufacturing, oil & gas and process sectors. It has recently welcomed 145 new learners onto programmes at its facility and is inviting students on 7th and 9th 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.

The training provider has strong links with a large cohort of 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: “We’re currently supporting more than 580 learners and apprentices at different stages of their training, who will no doubt go on to enjoy rewarding and lengthy careers both in the Tees Valley and across the world.

“It’s always exciting to see prospective apprentices who could form the next class of engineers at TTE and I would encourage anyone who’s interested in embarking on one of our diverse courses to come along to an open evening and find out more.”

The Career Events will run on the 7th and 9th November between 5pm and 6pm 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
