It is with great sadness that DTA has to announce that our colleague Howard Cooper passed away on Thursday 5th July after a long battle with cancer.
Howard was an invaluable member of the DTA team and his wealth of experience has helped to grow DTA to what it is today. He had a fantastic relationship with employers and his dedication to helping young people succeed is something all at DTA will continue to admire.
Throughout his long illness; Howard never let this effect the job he had to do and still travelled to employers and schools to be a much needed support. His positive attitude throughout is something we will never forget and we will all take this example into our daily lives.
Howard's kind-nature will be missed and a huge hole will be left at DTA; he has helped an unimaginable amount of young people to develop them into fantastic employees and given them much needed support when they needed it.
We speak for a lot of people when we say; Howard will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with Howard's family and friends at this sad time.
