NETA was set up in 1975, as a charitable group training association, offering quality training for engineering construction companies based in the Northern Region. Since its inception the company has gained recognition as one of the UK's largest vocational training providers and, through it's pro-active policy and programme of continuous improvement, now offers a diverse range of services to many other occupational sectors outside of engineering.
Approved as the first Centre of Vocational Excellence for Engineering Construction, NETA was also the first independent training provider to achieve certification in the Training Quality Standard with excellence in Engineering. It not only provides commercial courses to industry and commerce, but is also heavily involved in government initiatives such as Work Based Training for young people and Train to Gain.
In the 34 years of its existence NETA has gained considerable experience in developing and delivering well planned directed learning. The integration of working rigs and simulated site activity into the learning process maximises the effective use of resources and creates a realistic learning experience for individuals. A major strength has been the ability of the Centre to develop learning programmes, which meet specific client requirements rather than limiting choice to standard course activity.
NETA has developed its range of services to a level that meets the needs of almost 2500 companies per year and its current portfolio can offer candidates training in areas ranging from Health & Safety, Transport, Fork Lift Truck Driving, to Electrical, Welding, Plating, pipefitting, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Handling, Scaffolding, Gas, Instrumentation and Electronics.

NETA has extended and maintained practical training facilities whilst many have moved away from such resources and goes to great lengths to ensure that it is at the forefront of developments in terms of technology and facilities in order that the customer can be totally confident that courses are based on the most up to date information and regulations available. Passionate about raising the profile of the North East, NETA is often the forerunner in the delivery of new ground-breaking training, regularly the first to invest in the training needs of today and instrumental in bringing to the area training courses previously unavailable to the local workforce.
NETA has extended and maintained practical training facilities whilst many have moved away from such resources.
The company has steadily grown from a small specialist-training provider with a single facility to one of the largest providers in the North of England with centres spread over three geographical sites within the Teesside area. In addition, many courses are now delivered at clients' own premises either in the UK or abroad, and the majority of NETA's programmes are customised, to reflect the specific requirements of the client.
Although much of the training delivered by NETA is customised, the company is accredited by a number of awarding bodies such as ECITB, City & Guilds, CITB, NASC, RTITB, and offers training geared to National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ's)
Advantages of studying here
Our training methods are practical and hands-on. All NETA's instructional staff has come from industry and have considerable personal experience within their field of expertise. Their approach allows learners to first practice and perfect new skills and knowledge before putting them into use in the workplace, so immediately raising the over-all skill level of any business.
These training methods are "competency based", which means that when learners return from one of our courses they can actually "do" whatever it was they set out to learn.
After every course, feedback is obtained from both trainees and employers. More importantly, we take note of the results, constantly updating our training content in response to customer reaction, maintaining a responsive attitude that ensures we truly understand and address all your needs underlining our commitment to continued improvement.
