The Solihull-based branch of the global car giant has expressed interest in reviving an apprenticeship programme.
The lack of skilled engineers is the reason behind the move, as well as the company’s large amount of open vacancies.
The company approached Solihull College to seek ways in which they could solve the problem and after joining with the National Apprenticeship Service, the college recruited five apprentices.
All have begun their engineering apprenticeships at the college’s Woodlands Campus in Smith’s Wood.
Rebecca Austin, resourcing manager at TRW told reporters, “The staff at Solihull College really understand the meaning of the word ‘partnership’ and have taken the time to get to know our business and how it works.
“As a result, we have very high quality apprentices starting an excellent programme tailored to our needs.”
Ms Austin added that TRW is a growing business and that it has a need for talented engineers.
“We recognise the need to develop young people to support our future needs,” She said.
