Darren Raby

Business Development Sales Co-ordinator

As a new member of staff for NETA Training, I joined the Sales & Business Development Team in Stockton Riverside College in February this year. The purpose of the role is to engage with employers to promote engineering apprenticeships and the upskilling of existing staff and to coordinate commercial training courses.

I spent 13 years working in the engineering industry before moving into education. During my time in industry I learned the various needs of engineering and manufacturing businesses and how important skills training is to both companies and employees. As a result my time in education has been spent supporting both businesses and individuals to gain this much needed skills training. I have worked in teaching, assessing and marketing but mainly employer engagement and business development and the majority of the businesses I have worked with have been in the engineering and manufacturing sector. I enjoy seeing businesses and individuals flourish when they have the confidence to apply their training in the workplace.
