“Heller relies heavily on the expertise of the MGTS TDA to maximise our Apprentices’ academic and practical qualifications. Their knowledge of the ever changing world of government requirements and criteria required to satisfy the relevant standards, is vital for Heller. It allows us to focus on our own in-house training, knowing we get the balance right for each Apprentice.” OWEN NEEDLES, Health & Safety Officer and Training Supervisor, Heller Machine Tools

“It is the flexibility, innovative methods and care for the learner that make MGTS my Training Provider of choice. The service I get from my TDA at MGTS is outstanding. His knowledge and guidance coupled with well thought out SMART targets has ensured all my Apprentices have completed the criteria for their apprenticeship in good time. This has allowed them sufficient time to focus on their impending End Point Assessments.” LES JONES, Technical Trainer, Owen Mumford

“Tutors and Training & Development Advisers are conscientious, enthusiastic and appropriately qualified. They make good use of the technical and commercial expertise to provide a strong industrial focus and relevance when they plan and implement learning.”  OFSTED
