Training and Apprenticeships

Preparing our team and TRT ...for the long haul


At TRT, we may work with big boys’ toys, but behind every design, every project and every job we deliver to our clients is our team. Our people are our priority – it is part of the value we have of being a family business. And we’re committed to developing the skills and experience of our team.

We offer a range of training and apprenticeship opportunities for our staff. Why? Because we want to continue to deliver the best solutions and latest technology to our customers. How we achieve that is by continuing to upskill our staff to make sure they stay at the forefront of the industry.

At TRT, we’re committed to investing in the future.

What’s Involved

Apprenticeship training programmes vary in length from 2 to 4 years depending on the trade. Practical and theory skills are completed by distance learning, on the job training, in-house product training and off-job polytechnic courses.

Your practical skills will be developed in our manufacturing plants, workshops and parts warehouses. You will work alongside our qualified team members, who will share their extensive knowledge and experience.

We offer weekly study groups for ongoing support during your time on the programme, our apprentices are able to work together and find this invaluable.


Apprentice of the Year Awards

Each year we celebrate the success of our apprenticeship programme with our Apprentice of the Year Awards. The finalists are selected based on a number of criteria including results achieved, quality of workmanship and enthusiasm and commitment to their trade.
