Tyler is currently in Year 13 at The Duston School and is completing his A level qualifications this summer (2012). On July 2nd 2012 Tyler starts his level 3 apprenticeship as a trainee Draughtsman at Enterprise Control Systems based in Wappingham. He starts on £8500 and the company have guaranteed Tyler a permanent position when he qualifies. They have also suggested that they may sponsor him through university at a later date if he wants to further his qualifications.
Tyler is very excited about starting his apprenticeship, especially because just over a year ago he had no idea what he was going to do after completing his A levels. He just knew he didn’t want to go to university.
As part of the Retention Project Aimhigher was running Tyler was interviewed by Mary Richardson and was put in touch with Simon Webster at NITAL, the local training provider for engineering apprenticeships. Tyler was put forward for interview with Enterprise Control Systems. They were impressed with him and offered him the apprenticeship to start after he completes his examinations.
