All at DTA would like to say congratulations to Barley Gillespie who won Highly Commended Young Apprentice at the 2019 Ryedale Business Awards. 

Barley is an example on where an Apprenticeship can take you. He has only recently completed his Advanced Apprenticeship in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Kirkbymoorside based employer, Sylatech. 

Due to his hard work, Barley was promoted to Chargehand before he completed his Apprenticeship and now has an increased responsibility in his role. 

Barley has excelled throughout his 4 years with DTA and in 2015 he was awarded DTA's Second Year Highly Commended Electrical/Maintenance Apprentice of the Year which was to reward his hard work and commitment. 

He has also supported Careers Events at Ryedale School where he shared his experience of being an apprentice to the students at the school where he was an ex-student. 

Well done Barley and we can't wait to see where his career takes him now.
