Electrical and Electronic Higher Apprentices Matthew Tindall, Mike Coates, Joe Godliman and Darren Kirk were pleased to have visited Deep Sea Electronics (DSE) in Hunmanby on Tuesday 25th September to help them with their HND studies.
Come along to our Apprenticeship Open Evening on Tuesday 16th October. There is no need to book; just drop in anytime between 4pm and 7pm.
The evening will give visitors the opportunity to speak to local employers about careers in engineering, have a look around DTA's specialist engineering training facilities as well as the chance to ask current apprentices about their experience and how they got into an apprenticeship.
What a brilliant way to celebrate DTA's 30 Years in Training Anniversary and the Government's Year of Engineering with another record breaking year for apprentice intake!
On Wednesday 12th September we were excited to welcome our 63 new starts to the centre for their first day.
We are excited to announce that DTA's General Manager John Brockett has been named in the top-3 for Business Personality of the Year at the Pride of Malton and Norton Awards.
John who was DTA's previous Chairman having worked in industry at Sylatech joined us in 2014. He has contributed to growth in DTA over the past few years' and has given young people lots of advice and guidance on their options and getting them into worthwhile careers. John is due to retire in 2018.
Final Year Higher Apprenticeship students Matt Tindall, Darren Kirk, Joe Godliman and Mike Coates who are currently studying HND were lucky to visit York University and be shown around their integrated circuit manufacturing facilities by Dr Iain Will.
The University of York is home to pioneering manufacturing and research and in the clean room where the apprentices are pictured; circuits are designed, built, connected, encapsulated and tested. The air in the facility is filtered to a degree far higher than any hospital operating theatre, as the smallest particle of dust can get into the assembly and cause chip failure.
DTA's Alyssa and IQ Engineers' Dezhaun had the fantastic opportunity to be interviewed by the Telegraph about their experience of being an apprentice and how as part of the Industry Apprentice Council they're working to change opinions around apprenticeships and to explode myths that that still exist.
