It’s great to learn my skills whilst getting paid for it. The knowledge that I learn at TTS, I apply to my everyday working life.
My apprenticeship is preparing me well for the future. You start at the bottom and everyone at TTS is there to help you get to the top.
The last two years have been really good and I have learned plenty. For someone new coming into an apprenticeship, they can expect to have good fun learning and to work hard.
Everything we do at TTS is relevant and up to date. The equipment we use and the practical assessments that we do in TSS is similar to what we do in work so everything is transferable. The tutors are really down to earth and I know I can text them and they will come to work to observe and help me get through my course.
The best thing about being a TTS apprentice is the smaller classes so you can be more one-on-one with the teacher. I love coming here, all the students and teachers are good craic.
Doing this apprenticeship is the best thing I’ve ever done. I thought it was going to be like school but you have a lot more freedom and get treated like an adult.
I would recommend my apprenticeship to young people as you are getting paid as you learn. Most people go to university and come out with big bills but we get paid as we learn so it’s definitely a big bonus. When you use your knowledge to make something work it’s a good feeling.
TTS is really, really good. Because you’re not in the classroom every single day of the week and it’s broken up with the practical side, that makes a really big difference. I don’t think there’s a huge amount of places that have the facilities that TTS has to do the practical side of things.
I could have gone on to university after completing my A-Levels, but I decided on an apprenticeship and I’m really glad I chose this path. I’m looking forward to a successful career in the industry after completing a Level 3 apprenticeship in heavy vehicle repair.
I have just completed a driving apprenticeship and passed my CPC and Class 2 practical test with TTS. Thank you to all the staff at TTS, especially Geoff and Colin for helping me achieve my qualifications. I couldn’t recommend them enough!
I joined TTS in 2016 and have just completed my apprenticeship in car body repair at Wrights Accident Repair Centre in Dromore. I’ve really enjoyed the experience and have now got IMI Level 2 and 3 qualifications through TTS which will serve me well in my future career. I have secured full-time employment at Wrights and I’ll be happy to stay in the job for many years to come.
I left school in June 2019 after completing A-levels, but I didn’t particularly want to go on to higher education. I had been racing go-karts since I was 8 and was always interested in cars. I applied for TTS, and after passing their pre-entry aptitude test, Robert Deignan signposted me towards vacancies in the Agnew Group. I’m now more than half way through my 1st year as an apprentice technician in Belfast Audi and I’m loving every minute of it.
