Learner Support

The MGTS Learner Support Team is on hand for pastoral care and offers a confidential service for any concerns that learners may have from their first day at MGTS until the end of the apprenticeship.

Our team is available to offer support, advice and guidance whatever the problem. Struggling with coursework? Issues at work? Not coping? They will do their utmost to help you and if they don’t know the answer then they will put you in touch with someone who does.

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.

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.

I chose engineering because I have always been hands on and all my favourite lessons in school were practical. I was also influenced by the earning potential. Once I achieve my engineering qualifications and have some experience I will have the opportunity to earn a salary that will allow me to live the life I want to live.
