Tresham has a long standing commitment to meeting the needs of industry and works closely with many major employers in the region to develop the right course content to ensure employability of our learners when they complete their course.
Our specialist resources based at our Corby and Wellingborough campuses deliver courses at all levels to enable progression through the different stages of your skills development.
Our resources include advanced engineering workshops, for both electronics and mechanical engineering and fully equipped suites. Our motor vehicle training areas provide a realistic working environment for learners to accomplish the full range of skills required for these careers.
As well as progressing through to full time employment or an apprenticeship learners also progress onto higher level qualifications such as the HNC and HND qualifications in Engineering offered by Tresham University Centre or other Universities.
“I have always been interested in cars and I spend a lot of my free time rebuilding old Fords with my dad, which are then used for racing at Santa Pod race track. I also work at Santa Pod as a race marshal, so I am never far away from cars. The course has been really enjoyable and the facilities are great. The tutors are always enthusiastic and seem to enjoy their work, and this has made me consider teaching in this field as a possible career.”
“Some of my family have an engineering background from their time in the military, so it’s been a natural step for me to start exploring this is a possible future career. The course is really good and is pushing me to learn; there is a lot of theory to get to grips with, but this is also well balanced with the practical side. The tutors have been very supportive and are always approachable when I have needed help. I hope to gain an engineering apprenticeship after completing the course.”
