Committed to training the next generation of engineers, Tamworth cutting tool manufacturer Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has employed yet another new apprentice. Tyler Green has joined ITC as the sixth apprentice in the last three years.
During a recent work experience program, Mr Tyler Green demonstrated an excellent aptitude for mechanical engineering and he has now been rewarded with an opportunity to transfer this aptitude into workplace experience over the next four years as the new machine shop apprentice. Upon completion of his four year apprenticeship, Tyler will combine shop floor training with day-release academic qualifications to become a fully trained CNC machinist.
ITC has a history of purchasing the very latest machine tool and production technology, often being the first company in the UK to install next generation equipment. Employing this strategy and purchasing an average of two new machines every year, Tyler has an opportunity to train on advanced technology that is the envy of most manufacturing businesses. Combining on-the-job training by using state-of-the-art production technology with academic qualifications will certainly put Tyler on a positive path to a promising career in manufacturing.
Commenting upon Tyler joining the team, ITC’s Marketing Manager Georgia Graves says: “By continually employing new apprentices, ITC is certainly contributing to training the next generation of engineer whilst bringing creative new ideas, enthusiasm and youth to our forward thinking business. Bringing teenagers into our business and giving them a career path and an advanced precision engineering qualification, fills both ITC and the apprentices with immense pride. Some of our previous apprentices are on a career path with our company that is fulfilling our long-term business objectives whilst providing a challenging and exciting career path for staff. At ITC, we are forever evolving. Whether it’s our product development, adopting new methodologies and strategies or purchasing the very latest machine tool technology; ITC is a fantastic company to work for and our high level of employee retention qualifies this.”
