KITS Training and Conference Centre Based in Brighouse West Yorkshire - News

Another Positive Contribution to the Local Economy!

Kirkdale Industrial Training Services Ltd (KITS), the very successful and high performing, Brighouse based, Engineering Training Provider, has had an exceptional start to the annual academic year for its rigorous Engineering Apprenticeship Programme following on from a very successful Ofsted Grade 2 “good” provision rating earlier this year.

Approximately 100 keen, high-achieving school leavers commenced a pre-employment Study Programme at KITS on Monday 28th July 2014. The engineering “rookies” are embarking on up to four years structured apprenticeship programmes, with the optional progression for them to a Foundation Degree thereafter.

David Todhunter, Chief Executive, said “A significant number of learners have been fortunate enough to gain a place on the Programme and will gain employment with local Engineering and Manufacturing companies later this year. The demand for high quality engineering apprentices in this local area has never been greater.

What Employers will get with KITS’ pre-employment and apprenticeship training scheme, is a skilled employee who will, in many cases, remain loyal to the company and grow with it. I have known employees who start as apprentices and end up as directors and owners of their own companies”.

As well as developing practical skills for work, learners also cover pre-employment skills such as health and safety, safeguarding and drug and alcohol awareness, enhanced functional skills including English, Maths and ICT.

KITS, which has its headquarters and Skills Training Centre on Armytage Road, Brighouse, also aims to instil good work ethics among its learners – with learners clocking on and clocking off shift as they would do in the workplace. Their punctuality record is monitored at weekly reviews and reports provided to Employers.

The aim is that by the end of their training, the apprentices will have the appropriate engineering skills to contribute productively to their companies from day one, working as part of the team, with positive work ethics and an improved capability and awareness to cope with employment demands and challenges.
