During 2015, TSG launched its own in-house staff training centre, "TSG Academy - The Peter Thrussell Centre for Training and Excellence". The Academy lends its name to our founder Peter Thrussell, who was a firm believer in the development of young people, providing them with skills relevant to the sectors in which we work in.
The Academy’s main practice is to help guide all our apprentices to reach their full potential and achieve their ultimate goal in gaining their qualifications in their chosen profession.
TSG Academy is fully equipped with a range of operational Gas appliances, including a range of boiler types, Heat Interface Units, Air Source Heat Pumps and an Unvented Hot water generator. We also have a dedicated area for our electricians which incorporates the facilities to show safe isolation procedures, testing of circuits and fault finding. The Academy also has capacity to expand for future technologies as and when they arise.
All apprentices are mentored by our dedicated Training Manager, who has a vast knowledge of the industry and is able to communicate their experience not only to the apprentices, but to the existing site operatives when required.
Since its launch a number of our clients and manufacturers have visited the Academy, all of whom have commented on how forward thinking we are to provide our staff with such a facility.
We have a long and proud history of providing apprenticeship opportunities and have been doing this over 40 years. This programme has been very successful and is something that we at TSG are fully committed to. Whilst older operatives bring a wealth of experience to the business, apprentices are our future and are trained specifically in our corporate culture and ways of working. In addition, this approach helps bridge the skills gap that exists in the industry.
Year on year we have trained over 450 apprentices. This has resulted in TSG and our apprentices receiving training awards and we have built excellent relationships with our local training providers.
