The multi-national manufacturer’s MD, Jason Lippitt, was delighted to attend the House of Commons which included speakers Simon Waugh, Chief Executive of the National Apprenticeship service and John Hayes MP, Minister of State for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning who unveiled the ‘New Era of Apprenticeships’.

TMAT was congratulated by the Minister for their successful track record in mentoring and supporting apprentices and fully embracing the government’s policy.

Jason Lippitt, MD said:

“It was an honour to be invited to such a prestigious event and TMAT pledges to support the New Era of Apprenticeships.”

TMAT has already fully embraced the ‘New Era of Apprenticeships’ by currentlyhaving 20 apprenticeship scheme positions filled by one of the recession’s hardest hit age gaps, 16-24 year-olds. TMAT encourages an investment in people, as Jason Lippitt, MD said:

“It is time to ‘get with apprenticeships’ and nurture the young talent”.

Apprentices join the TMAT team

TMAT has welcomed two new Business Administrator apprentices to its team.

Abigail Robinson is 18 years old and lives locally to Chesterfield. She recently completed her A-levels and decided on an apprenticeship to help progress a career in business. Abigail chose the Business Administration apprenticeship which will give her experience in a multi-faceted role. She will be responsible for everything from reception to admin support for Production Planning. This role will allow Abigail to gain skills she can apply to other administrative roles.

Locally born and bred Dale Smith, 18 has been working in an HGV repair centre since leaving school. Dale decided he wanted to change his career direction to a more “white collar” work environment. He chose the Business Administrator apprenticeship because he can gain skills and experience in many areas.

TMAT is committed to offering apprenticeships to young people that give them opportunities to learn practical skills and to build life long careers.
