Specialist Nutts Corner based training centre, Transport Training Services (TTS), has been announced as Toyota (GB) partner of choice for apprenticeship training in Northern Ireland.  Under this new arrangement, TTS will be the preferred supplier of vehicle technician apprenticeship training for all Toyota and Lexus Retailers within Northern Ireland.

The talent academy was officially launched at an event hosted by TTS, which brought together representatives from Toyota GB, as well as Heads of Business and Workshop Managers from all Toyota and Lexus Retailers across Northern Ireland.

Toyota marked the launch with the handover of five training cars, including EV and hybrid models, as well as a range of other specialist workshop equipment for use during the TTS training programme.

Speaking at the launch, Greg Culshaw, General Manager Customer & Network Support, Toyota (GB) said: “We believe that talented, passionate, and enthusiastic people are key to our continuing success. Our Retailers in Northern Ireland offer outstanding working environments, structured genuine career progression supported with excellent world-leading training. We are therefore excited that this new Technical Apprenticeship delivered by Transport Training Services will help attract technicians to start their career with us and join Toyota”.

CEO of Transport Training Services, Michael Strain, added: “We welcome Toyota and Lexus as our newest branded apprenticeship academy and look forward to playing our part in developing talent for their networks across Northern Ireland.  Toyota’s significant investment in vehicles and training equipment demonstrates its commitment to this partnership and further supports our aim of being at the forefront of upskilling industry in changing vehicle technology”.

Due to TTS’s ability to tailor course content, the students will be fully qualified Toyota or Lexus Service Technicians upon completion of the three-year training programme.
