One of TGU’s many initiatives is to provide vocational training classes aimed at developing and strengthening the community’s resources. TGU partners with organisations to provide training in programs such as electrical wiring, building and construction, basic welding, information technology and much more.
Continuing to identify new ways to contribute to the educational development of the young persons in the La Brea Community TGU included a Microsoft Office Specialist Training Programme to its list of programmes. Twelve (12) young persons from the community who presently attend secondary school were exposed to the training during the August vacation with the intent to acquire new skills and knowledge of the various Microsoft office programmes.
We are the proud sponsors of various training programmes for members of the community via National Energy Skills Centre, which lead to industry certification in Welding & Fabrication, Electrical and Pipefitting, and various aspects of Computer Training. In 2014, 50 persons successfully completed the part time technical training and over 50 persons accessed the computer training. There are currently 30 persons currently enrolled in different full time technical training.
