Advanced Apprenticeships

How Do I apply?

You need to complete an online application form which you can find at www.derwenttraining.co.uk and submit an up to date CV. Once our Recruitment Team has received your application you will be invited to DTA’s training centre in Malton to complete an assessment test and interview. Please note that this test is mandatory and your application won’t be taken any further until it has been completed.

Once you have completed the assessment and interview, we will start adding you to the shortlist for apprenticeship vacancies. Once we have a list of 10-12 applicants, we will then visit the employer for them to select who they will interview.

If you are selected, you will then be invited to the employers’ premises to complete a formal interview.

Please note that DTA is not a college so application does not mean automatic placement. You need to be successful in gaining employment before you can start. 

What are the entry requirements?

DTA recommends that you have a minimum of 5 GCSE’s (A*-C / 9-4) in Maths, English and Science or equivalent. You will have to be 16 or over and not be in full-time education, however you can apply if you’re due to leave school or sixth form in the summer.

Why our Apprentices recommend a career in Engineering:

‘’Not only is engineering practical, but it encompasses many skills that are transferable to other sectors of work. There is also a sense of pride to see a product that you have made or helped to make when it’s finished and what it means to others.’’
