Tenet is the specialist Control, Electrical & Instrumentation (CE&I) and Mechanical engineering design consultancy based in the North West of England has joined The 5% Club. The company provides niche design and technical services to a variety of industry sectors including pharmaceuticals; agrochemicals; utilities; and nuclear.
Tenet has an established track record and reputation for being able to provide quality engineering designs and support to clients to meet the very highest standards.
Tenets personnel work collaboratively with clients and the supply chain to provide feasibility and optioneering studies; engineering and safety system design; detailed design; safety system substantiations and independent peer reviews on existing plant new design packages.
“Developing a sustainable workforce to address the long term engineering skills gap is a top priority” says Engineering Director Jeff Huyton.
Since 2010 Tenet has been a member of the National Apprenticeship Scheme and has operated its own internal design apprenticeship meaning it was a natural move for the company to join The 5% Club.
Through Tenet’s apprenticeship scheme, trainees are able to achieve their NVQ level 3 and gain valuable design work experience. Several Tenet trainees have progressed onwards to complete HNCs in engineering and two have recently started undergraduate courses at University.
Tenet trainees are supported in the workplace with a mentor to help them develop personal and professional skills. During their apprenticeship the company ensures that trainees work with a number of senior personnel across a wide range of projects.
Tenet’s investment in personnel has been rewarded by employee’s loyalty to the business and by the skills and capabilities they now hold.
Where possible Tenet recruit personnel locally and actively seek creative people who are able to apply new or innovative technologies and methodologies to solve engineering challenges.
Tenet is also playing a crucial role in establishing the Warrington University Technical College (UTC) which is due to open in 2016. The principle of this college is to give 14-19 year olds an advantage in a future career in the Energy and Engineering sectors by focussing on the core subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The UTC will train the young engineers of tomorrow and help tackle the problem of a dwindling engineering resource pool. Tenet are a member of the UTC Trust and Operations Director Aidan McManus will sit on the Board of Trustees. Ultimately Tenet aim to accept a selection of students from the UTC into our apprenticeship scheme.
