YOUNG people working towards a career in gas engineering will be able to gain valuable hands-on training thanks to a new contract between Kier North Tyneside and leading training provider JTL
I am a great believer in the JTL
scheme, which offers nationally recognised qualifications, and over the past 30 years I have continually had apprentices on their courses.
Brian Mills, Yorkshire regional manager for JTL
, said: "The induction day was designed to not only encourage young women to open up their career options, but also to see whether they had the aptitude required to progress via an apprenticeship programme.
The verdict prevented Warner Hotels and JTL
from falling victim to an elaborate get rich quick scheme by plaintiff Amakua.
The company has a passion to develop their own long-serving and loyal work force and the new Training Centre manager Ken Barker, previously a Cenelec Standards Inspector for 8 years, has been provided the necessary training to become an approved JTL
assessor/lecturer and tasked with managing the company training goals for the region.
