Training provider wins major contract

Trade Training Associates

Trade Training Associates of Newcastle upon Tyne has been awarded a training contract by the National Apprenticeship Service and Skills Funding Agency to deliver Level 2 and 3 apprenticeships to 16-to-18-year olds in the mechanical-engineering sector. TTA is already training 76 apprentices and will train a further 80 over the next 18 months. 75% of the current apprentices are not in employment, education or training.

The apprentices are employed by TTA and given the opportunity to prove themselves with other employers on a ‘try-before-you-buy basis’. This approach dramatically reduces employer’s costs to customers, thereby creating more work
