The TTE Technical Training Group has delivered more than 130 NVQ's under the ACE initiative to craftsmen at Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd.
Middlesbrough-based TTE provided specialist NVQ Level 3 training and assessment to the experienced technicians to help them achieve the Assuring Competence in Engineering Construction--the (ACE) standard.
Following the successful completion of this training, Darlington-based Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd has re-engaged TTE to deliver NVQ Level 3/4 qualifications to management and planners, which is being part-funded by the Government's Train to Gain programme.
The training programmes are part of Cleveland Bridge UK Ltd's commitment to the ongoing up-skilling and competency assessment of its workforce.
The 150 technicians who achieved NVQ Level 3 qualifications in Fabrication, Welding, Electrical and Mechanical, will now receive their Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) certificate and ACE Cards, which prove their current competency in their trade.
ACE confirms that individuals can perform their job in a safe and competent manner and also provides tangible proof of long-standing skills that are still current, which have been developed via a wealth of work experience and training.
ACE was introduced to meet the need for proven competence and is an industry initiative, which is supported by stakeholders in engineering construction including clients, contractors and unions. The scheme meets Government and HSE demands for safety and skills competency in line with the NVQ structure.
TTE is an approved assessing centre for the ACE Scheme appointed by the ECITB.
