Apprentices find fresh sponsorship.

THE new owners of a Teesside chemical plant have preserved the jobs of a group of apprentices.

Middlesbrough-based TTE Technical Training Group says it has secured sponsorship for the nine apprentices with newly established Lotte Chemical UK (LCUK).

LCUK, the UK subsidiary of KP Chemicals and part of the Lotte Group, recently purchased the assets formerly belonging to Artenius UK, which went into administration in July 2009.

A number of the apprentices were supported by Artenius and therefore lost their support, but LCUK has agreed to continue with the apprenticeships.

The group of chemical, mechanical, instrumentation and electrical apprentices are currently completing training programmes at TTE's centre in South Bank, Middlesbrough, and are beginning a two-year placement at LCUK's Wilton site this month.

Stephen Trillo, of LCUK, said: "We need to attract good young people into our industry and the support of apprenticeship schemes with professional providers is one of our key objectives."
