‘TDR Training is a place where a group of people that have experience in engineering teach you about engineering and they also teach you real life skills that are essential throughout life. You are treated like adults / apprentices which will help me when I actually start an apprenticeship’.
Matthew Robinson - Engineering Apprenticeship Access Programme
“I am so pleased that I now have an apprenticeship with a successful company and feel motivated to do my very best in my apprenticeship and career. I would recommend this course to anyone who would like a career in engineering.”
