TTE Technical Training Group has marked its 25th anniversary with a celebration of the achievements of its students and apprentices.

‘Celebrating Success 2015’, which was held at Middlesbrough Town Hall, highlighted the achievements of its current study programme students and employer-sponsored apprentices.

Guest of Honour at the event was Olympic Silver Medallist Steve Cram, who gave a motivational speech about his career.

Middlesbrough-based TTE, which was founded in 1990, is a registered charity, which provides vocational technical training, including apprenticeships, for your people on Teesside. It also delivers technical training to technicians from international industry in the UK and around the world.

The surpluses from its commercial activities are re-invested in supporting the training of young people.

A series of awards were presented to students training at TTE whose programmes are funded by Derwentside College, Redcar & Cleveland College and South Tyneside College. The awards highlighted the achievements of a number of students training in electrical, instrumentation and process disciplines.

The managing director’s award was presented to Chad Emmerson from Marske, who has developed welding skills in a short space of time, which are comparable to those of experienced tradesmen.
