As the training delivery arm of the registered charity, Transport Training Board for Northern Ireland, TTS has a genuine, longstanding interest in facilitating best practice and the highest levels of compliance for the transport sector.
Our focus is on providing class-leading expertise, purpose-built facilities and modern teaching methods to deliver relevant skills for the 21st century.
I have noticed a big change in my apprentices from they started going to tech. They are wanting to learn and get hands on.
We have worked closely with TTS in apprenticeship recruitment and training for a number of years. TTS provide initial filtering and testing of applicants for our depots in Mallusk and Portadown and this ensures that we get the right young people into the company. TTS technical trainers also visit our workplace on a regular basis to assess apprentice competence on the job.
