Whatever your interests and skills, the TDM Powered Programme has a career for you!
The Tooling Manufacturing Industry is currently implementing a constructive turnaround strategy to ensure that the industry generates and retains sufficient skills to keep the manufacturing industry competitive within the global context. One of the first steps is the implementation of the TDM Powered Pre-Apprenticeship Orienatation Programme aimed to assist and empower candidates (who might experience difficulties in normal circumstances) to enrol for apprenticeship training.
The nine-month programme comprises three phases of three months each:
Phase 1: is a classroom phase that introduces students to subjects such as engineering drawing reading,basic metrology,shop floor mathematics,occupational English,basic computer skills and life skills.
Phase 2: is a workshop training to teach participants basic hand skills and machining techniques.
Phase 3: comprises industry based on the job training.
After the succesful completion of the TDM Powered Pre-Apprenticeship Orientation Programme participants will have gained some valuable credits to further apprenticeship training. They will for example also be allowed to work in the industry as machine attendants,line inspectors and product packers .
