A LEADING Aberdeen apprentice training company has been recognised for its hard work with a prestigious youth development award.
ITCA Training, based at the Kirkhill Industrial Estate at Dyce, scooped the Opportunities for All award at Aberdeen City Council’s Children and Young People’s Service Awards, during a ceremony at the Beach Ballroom recently.
ITCA, which is one of the largest engineering apprenticeship training firms in Scotland, works with a range of firms across the North-east to provide training for young employees, and although they offer the traditional disciplines, the training centre delivers business focused courses and apprenticeships.
The company has been providing the North-east with apprenticeship courses for more than 20 years and works closely with employers and Skills Development Scotland to deliver training across a wide range of disciplines.
Managing director, June Jones, said: “It is an honour for the company to have been nominated for and subsequently recognised with this award.
“It is testament to the hard work that everyone puts in to ensuring the best possible learning experience for every young person that comes through our doors and to making sure that our services are available to as many people as possible.
“I would also like to give special thanks to John Cairns, from the council’s Education Services department, for nominating us for the award.”
Last month, nine new apprentices enrolled on a 20-week E2A (Entry to Apprenticeship) course with the hope of achieving their vocational qualification and moving into employment in the highly competitive energy sector.
ITCA, which was established in 1989, provides training for young employees in sectors including, welding, fabrication, mechanical engineering, business administration and logistics.
