What makes GTD different?
GTD is run by employers, for employers. Unlike other training organisations, GTD is recognised as having charitable purpose and is managed by local companies – this means that the Employer-Member companies decide how they want the Group to operate in order that maximum benefit is delivered to the local community, to their businesses and to their apprentices.
GTD is overseen by a Board of Directors, all of whom represent local employers, and who give their time voluntarily to ensure that the focus remains on retaining expertise and talent within the local area. Additionally, it is normal for all apprentices who complete their training to remain in employment within the area, and achieve their maximum potential within their preferred industry.

GTD exists to provide and deliver first-class, high quality, engineering apprenticeships and training within Devon and Cornwall.
GTD is committed to working with apprentices to develop responsible, ethical and professional behaviours and to encourage apprentices to actively engage in their learning.
GTD, through its own employees, is committed to motivating, mentoring and inspiring all of its apprentices to achieve their full potential and to make a valuable contribution to society.
GTD endeavours to be the supplier of choice for engineering apprenticeships and training for both local employers and apprentices.
