Here’s what YOU think of tSpace…

‘I am currently on a pre-traineeship course. I am starting an apprenticeship with First Great Western next year in February. I was introduced to tSpace at the Job Shop in South Devon College. tSpace is great! Everything is easy to access and the site offers a variety of elements that will help my future career. I know that I will be using the interview section of the website as I want to improve my interview skills to progress from an apprenticeship to a full-time permanent job.’

What YOU think of tSpace…

‘I am delivering an employability module as part of L2 BTEC Business. The tSpace has allowed me to show students another great source of information that is local to them. I particularly use the C.V and cover letter writing page to help and show the students that they can access the information independently to write their own effective C.V.’

Here’s what Spirent’s current apprentices think…

My experience as an Apprentice at Spirent has been unlike anything I've ever done before. I've found it to be rewarding with a steep learning curve, working with people with a diverse range of skills who I've been able to learn a great deal from.

David Smith, Electronic Apprentice

I have found my experience at Spirent to be very exciting, I am learning new things every day. A broad range of knowledge, information/ job roles to learn. Everyone is friendly, happy to help and enthusiastic about their jobs.

Sophie Westerman, Manufacturing Apprentice

I love working here, and to have this opportunity locally was such a surprise to me. Obviously being a bit older as well, I never thought I’d be able to take advantage of an apprenticeship scheme.
