Tiger Trailers 5th intake of apprentices in September 2018

Working from our state of the art manufacturing facility in Winsford, Tiger understands the importance of developing and encouraging young talent into the industry. In partnership with Warrington & Vale Royal College (Hartford Campus) we have developed a two year programme leading to a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Engineering Manufacturing. Our continued investment in the apprenticeship scheme will ensure we can build a skilled workforce for the future, enabling us to continue producing the high quality products you see today.

What the apprenticeship involves

Tiger apprentices learn and experience all the major manufacturing stages in the production process. Working with a skilled mentor they spend four months in each department (including fabrication, chassis build, assembly, air and electrical systems, through to trailer completion). They are supported throughout the programme with regular reviews and assessments at each key stage.

Before each new apprentice starts working on our shop floor they get one week’s basic training at college to teach basic workshop skills and safe working practices. Following basic training they go to college on day release to receive workshop training, ensuring they achieve the required standards for the Level 2 Apprenticeship.

 

What Do Tiger Look For in an Apprentice?

Tiger Trailers’ philosophy is to be dynamic and creative, producing innovative products with a vision to become one of the UK’s leading trailer and bodybuilding manufacturers. Tiger apprentices learn how to work in a growing business through hands on practical work combined with college workshop training. Our apprentices need to have the following:

  • Predicted GCSE grades C or above in English, Maths and ICT
  • A keen interest in working in an engineering/manufacturing environment
  • A desire to work hard to develop their skills

  • “I started as an engineering apprentice, learning all the skills on the shop floor. Without that experience, I wouldn’t be where I am today. The things I learned set me on my way, giving me the confidence and industry knowledge to move into the back office where I’ve gone from strength to strength.”

    Darren Holland, Sales Director

  • “The apprentice programme is really challenging, but also really rewarding. Working so closely with my mentor day to day gives me loads of opportunities to learn and develop new skills. Everyone was really welcoming from day one; now I feel like I’ve been here for years!”

    Kane Martin, Tiger Apprentice
