DERWENT Training Association (DTA) in Malton is celebrating another outstanding year with 63 new starters on their advanced and higher apprenticeship programmes.

John Brockett, DTA general manager said: “This year we have seen a near record number starting their advanced apprenticeship and a record number progressing on to a higher apprenticeship. This demonstrates that the engineering sector in our region is strong and looking to develop its own skill base, encouraging young people to stay in region and contribute to the local economy.’’
