TMAT Raises The Profile Of Engineering


Lee Carpenter presents to the students

TMAT recently supported NLT Training Services with their first ‘Made in Chesterfield’ campaign aimed at raising the profile of engineering.

The Made in Chesterfield Festival ran from 10th – 14th November 2014 in celebration of the engineering and manufacturing industry in our town.  The week focused on inspiring our next generation into engineering.

NLT provided a ‘have a go’ activity in their Engineering Skills Hub for 24 local school students from 3 local schools all with a passion for practical engineering.

Lee Carpenter – Production Team Leader at TMAT joined the Hub and gave the young students an insight into local manufacturing.

TMAT was delighted to be part of the event and fully supports NLT in their bid to raise the profile of engineering and helping the youngsters of today become the engineers of tomorrow!

TMAT Involved in Local Employment Initiatives

TMAT Ltd has been involved in a recent local employment initiative which has been championed nationwide by Ingeus UK Limited.  Ingeus are the prime provider for the government’s flagship employability contract – “The Work Program”.

Carl Palmer – Production Manager represented TMAT Ltd at the Sports & Social Inclusion program which was held at The Proact Stadium – home to Chesterfield FC.  The project uses sport, particularly football and boxing to raise people’s self-esteem and motivation whilst at the same time delivering tailored employability support, which helps clients develop the skills they need, including teamwork, discipline, leadership and motivation.  The program was delivered by Ingeus along with sportsmen from Boxing -Glenn McCrory  (former British Cruiserweight Boxer) and from Football – Olivier Bernard (Former Newcastle Utd & French international footballer).  Carl presented the delegates with an insight into TMAT Ltd and the qualities that the business looks for when recruiting. He was pleased to be involved in the project and hoped that, on behalf of TMAT Ltd, he had contributed to the future successes of the candidates involved in the project.
