Tes first worked with Dennis Eagle back in secondary school where she worked on an engineering project through the Engineering Education Scheme. As part of her A Level course, the Dennis Eagle-funded project required the re-engineering of a lower exit exhaust. Most recently Tes has worked on the updates for new vehicle data sheets and has enjoyed this work the most.

Having now completed her 4-year apprenticeship with Dennis Eagle, Tes is now waiting to begin her Electromechanical Engineering degree at Coventry University whilst working full-time with the company. A modest and methodical engineer, with a self-confessed love of spreadsheets, Tes also works at the weekend as a children’s swimming instructor teaching 3 to 18-year-olds anything from the basics through to gala preparations.

This fantastic achievement follows Sean Williams from Dennis Eagle winning the BTEC Programme Apprentice of the Year in 2021-2022. Simon McCulloch, Dennis Eagle Technical Sales Manager comments,


“We are really proud of what Tess has achieved, she has worked incredibly hard over the last 4 years and has engaged well with the wider team, her eye for detail is second to none! Our Apprenticeship program at Dennis Eagle is shaping the workforce of the future and we have many key team members working within our organisation who have developed from their apprenticeships.”

Luke Bennett from the Midland Group Training Services added, “Teresa is one of the most hardworking and dedicated individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. She is a perfectionist in everything she does and always completes tasks to the best of her ability.”


“Teresa has a passion for her work and an unrivalled drive to succeed. This was recognised very early on within Dennis Eagle and as a result of her hard work and dedication, Teresa was promoted to a Technical Sales role. This was achieved before her apprenticeship had even concluded. This is a rare accomplishment and is a testament to her skills and abilities.”


“Teresa obtained a distinction for the HNC qualification, as well as passing her end point assessment of the apprenticeship, despite going through a tough period in her personal life. Teresa displayed great resilience and determination and did not let this impact her work. She continued to work hard and excelled in her studies. I have no doubt that Teresa will continue to achieve great things and have an extremely successful career.”
