TDSi has announced its first higher-level apprentice, trainee Product Engineer Oscar Johnson. Oscar is currently studying for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) at Bournemouth and Poole College for two years, but will continue as a Degree Apprentice for a further four years, with a permanent role at TDSi alongside his studies.
TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies commented: “It’s great to welcome Oscar to TDSi. He’s the first candidate to take up a higher-level apprenticeship at TDSi and he’ll be a great asset to our development team, as we ramp up product development and augment products in the GARDiS family and ecosystem. The security industry is leading the way on the apprenticeship front, with initiatives through Skills for Security (part of the BSIA), and TDSi is excited about the energy and innovative thinking that apprentices bring to the table as our ‘Boomers’ retire.”
Having studied engineering at college for the last year alongside his previous role in occupational health, 22-year-old Oscar is excited by his new role and the opportunities at TDSi. He stated, “This is a great opportunity for me and there is so much variation and job rotation within my new role.”
