We have sent a letter to all employers who have a tpm apprentice about attendance rates. Whilst many employers ensure apprentice attend their college days at tpm, a significant proportion of our apprentices are missing in-centre learning sessions. We would be very grateful if you could take the time to read this urgent letter and contact us if you have any queries.
