We’re so pleased to tell you that we’ve just taken on four new, fresh-faced apprentices, ready to start their careers in the industry that we all love. And in the coming year we’ll be able to offer as many as 8 more such positions to trainee engineers.
The expansion of our apprenticeship scheme comes thanks to significant growth in an area we offer great expertise in, offsite construction. As the demand for our services has grown, so the demand for appropriately skilled CAD engineers has increased and luckily we are on hand to deliver both.
Each of our new apprentices has completed a 16 week fast-track course in 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design thanks to the Construction and Design Centre of Excellence (Cadcoe) and its partnership with Dudley College. Throughout their course they had access to a state of the art digital technologies suite and received the most up-to-date industry training in a future-ready learning environment, all to prepare them for live projects.
Our company has a very proud track record with apprenticeship programmes. Not only did half of our staff start their careers as TDS apprentices but our Managing Director, Daniel Leech is also a co-founder of Cadcoe. In October we were thrilled to have our commitment to training recognised when we won Medium Employer of the Year at the Regional Apprenticeship Awards for the Midlands. So it’s a warm welcome to Lexi, Adam, Lora and Chris who’ll be working hard with their mentor, another Chris, on all manner of incredible TDS projects to come.
