Newport & District Group Training Association (NDGTA) was formed by a small group of engineering companies in the Newport area in 1965 as a consequence of the Industrial Training Act of the previous year. NDGTA’s role was essentially to function as the ‘training department’ for its member companies by identifying, organising, delivering and assessing training.
NDGTA continued to grow and adapt over the many years and has developed a formidable reputation for excellence amongst employers in the area. We have over 55 years of experience and have formed an excellent working relationship with more than 30 member and associate companies in and around the local area, including some national organisations.
NDGTA has secured a high level of credibility with various verifying bodies responsible for further education and training in Wales. We are an approved assessment and verification centre for EAL and SEMTA. We hold the prestigious ‘Investors in People’ award and are members of the QSA consortium.
For those wishing to reach beyond an apprenticeship, we are also accredited to deliver HNC & HND qualifications in engineering. NDGTA also offer the delivery of specialist, bespoke courses to companies within the engineering sector.
