About MGTS

With over 50 years’ experience MGTS is an educational charity specialising in engineering apprenticeships, training and assessment provision. Recognised nationally as learning and development experts, MGTS work in partnership with a wide range of companies from SMEs to global operators, all within a diverse range of industries including manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, food & drink and logistics.

We have proudly built long-standing relationships with many household brands such as Amtico, Britvic, FedEx, Morrisons, Triumph and Warburtons. So whether you are an individual looking to start your engineering career through an apprenticeship or an employer who wants to develop engineering talent within your business, we are here to provide you with expert guidance and tuition.

Our partnership with MGTS began in 2019 because we wanted a training provider able to afford our apprentices with the best possible start to their engineering careers.

What put MGTS above others was not only their wealth of knowledge, experience of the tutors, & state of the art facilities, but also their professionalism. Further, our apprentices speak highly of the first-class support delivered and their learning experiences, which is clearly evidenced by their increased confidence, knowledge and skills.

Such is the impression made by MGTS, we continue to grow our partnership.

Joyce Morris

Learning & Development Advisor

The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is consistently good and supports apprentices to make good progress and succeed well.

In practical training areas, the quality and range of technical resources to support the training of engineering apprentices are impressive.

PepsiCo Coventry has been working with MGTS for over 10 years in a really collaborative partnership. Our candidates return from MGTS to go on to really successful careers within PepsiCo. We have had Junior and Mature apprentices following robust programmes, building fantastic logbooks and knowledge on 4 year tailored courses that perfectly prepare them for engineering technical roles. I would recommend any business looking to switch or start their apprenticeship journey with MGTS.
