DTN Academy is a private training provider based in Stockton-On-Tees. It was established in 2000 and provides training in specialist areas within the Telecommunications Industry. Our Mission statement is to provide high quality nationally accredited vocational training, which will lead to employment or job enhancement. Our IAG service is designed to help you make an informed decision if you want to find out how to improve your job prospects or skills, get a qualification or just make the most out of your current job.
What we offer:
- A confidential, impartial and objective information and advice service, covering learning opportunities and the skills and qualifications needed for employment or career progression.
- Written information on all courses and opportunities.
- Support during your studies to assist your learning, personal development and career.
- Advice and services to enable you to study effectively if you have a disability or additional requirement.
- Telephone/internet services providing information and advice
- A signposting and referral service to other providers and sources of information (if we are unable to offer the information or advice you require).
- Specialist facilities for those with special needs, where appropriate
Information and Advice regarding Government funding for learning programmes and eligibility criteria where appropriate.
- Impartial and objective information and advice service on full cost learning
Throughout our provision, we deliver awareness and information sessions for all our training courses on offer. This one-day experience is a full account of DTN’s facility, training delivery and job expectations. At the end of the Information/Awareness session, we complete a BKSB initial assessment on all potential learners, covering maths and English, helping us to ensure the level of competence for the training on offer. We also conclude with a one-to-one interview to offer further advice and guidance to all potential learners.
For Armed Forces Personnel, including veterans, we complete the same awareness session.
However, we also offer individual advice for those leaving, or who have left the forces with any additional needs or support with training and employment.
All members of DTN Academy staff have undertaken a range of training, including Safeguarding and Prevent, some holding qualifications in Mental Health Awareness, Information, Advice and Guidance and Equality and Diversity.
