Training firm's apprentices record is broken again
10:19am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
A Malton-based training organisation that specialises in engineering has experienced a record number of new apprentices for the second year.
Forty-two apprentices have already been recruited by Derwent Training Association, working at local engineering companies. The association still has 13 vacancies for young apprentices in the Ryedale, Scarborough and York areas.
Howard Cooper, its business and training manager, said: “This year has been very busy. Local engineering companies have seen an upturn in the market and have strong order books, which are reflected in the recruitment of additional apprentices.
“Engineering companies across the Ryedale, York and Scarborough areas choose DTA to train their apprentices. This is a major endorsement of DTA and our reputation for producing skilled engineering apprentices, via expert training staff who have all worked in the industry and now pass on their knowledge.”
Coun Linda Cowling, council leader, said: “The council is funding DTA to invest in new technology and equipment to provide skills required by local businesses. This helps Ryedale firms to keep one step ahead of the market.”
