Supporting you every step of the way
From the initial induction to completing your apprenticeship programme MGTS colleagues will be on hand to support you, offering advice and guidance.
Every apprentice is allocated a dedicated Training & Development Adviser (TDA) who will support not only you but also your employer, ensuring that both parties gain maximum benefits from the programme. Your TDA will engage with you on a regular basis to review your progress, including visits to your workplace. They will be your first point of contact for any queries you may have.
We also have a Learner Support team available to support you with any pastoral concerns.
Skills for Life
In addition to the engineering training received by our learners, MGTS provide a more comprehensive learning package during your apprenticeship.
To help prepare learners for the workplace topics such as Presentation Skills, Report Writing and Financial Awareness are studied, along with workstyle behaviours:
- Personal responsibility and resilience
- Effective communication
- Working effectively in teams
- Problem solving techniques
- Continuous development
MGTS hold annual ‘Apprenticeship Awards’ to celebrate the achievements of apprentices. Nominated by tutors and TDAs, winners are presented with certificates and trophies to recognise their success.
Categories include Maintenance, Mechanical, Most Improved, Further Education and Apprentice of the Year.
Employers and family members are invited to join in the celebrations.
Listening to your feedback
We love to hear from our learners regarding what we are doing well and how we could improve our training provision. You will be encouraged to give feedback to your TDA and also complete online surveys at regular stages throughout your apprenticeship programme to enable us to implement any improvements.
You may be interested in becoming a ‘Learner Voice’ representative whereby you have the opportunity to attend quarterly meetings with our Chief Executive to give feedback on your learning experience.
