Euro-licence to boost prospects.
The organisation has been accredited as a British Computer Society approved centre and as a result has launched a European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) training programme.
Courses are being run for staff at TTE's Wilton Centre and learners on its Process Apprenticeship schemes.
Employees are following an open learning path where they can complete the course at their own pace while the apprentices attend lessons for either a three week or four week block during their first year of training.
A group of apprentices is the first at TTE to have achieved the ECDL qualification.
Keith Hunter, TTE managing director, said: "These days having a solid grounding in computer and information technology skills is an advantage in all sorts of careers.
"We have introduced the ECDL programme because it increases essential IT knowledge, offers an internationally recognised qualification, improves people's job prospects and provides a platform from which to move on to higher level IT education."
