TTE WINS – AND ACHIEVES MORE LANDMARKS
Now TTE has gone on to achieve a series of landmarks since winning the award, for its commitment and professionalism.
The training organisation recently opened a Centre of Vocational Excellence at its South Bank site in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland College to provide training in systems and engineering for over-16s.
Vera Baird, MP for Redcar, officially opened the new facility.
She said: "It is an outstanding example of a partnership between two organisations which can provide much needed local skills and also a burgeoning business in itself."
TTE has also achieved 100pc sponsorship of its students for the first time and recruited the largest number of school and college leavers in September 2003 on to its programmes.
It has won a prestigious training contract in the oil and gas sector after it was selected to work for BP in the Caspian Sea. The project, based in Baku, Azerbaijan, is to train hundreds of on-shore and offshore technicians for oil and gas exploration and production.
Keith Hunter, TTE managing director, said: "Winning the award has helped enormously.
"In terms of recognition, the exposure and people coming up to us and patting us on the back then it has been great. And in terms of raising the awareness of the organisation, the awards have been fantastic."
