Welcome to the CEATA Training Academy


CEATA is a dedicated engineering training academy specialising in welding, fabrication and mechanical engineering programmes and apprenticeships.

CEATA is listed on the Education and Skills Funding Agencies Register of Training Organisations and Register of Apprentice Training Providers. We offer a range of qualifications from EAL, NCFE and Proqual, alongside bespoke professional welding courses.


CEATA was established by Canal Engineering in 2013 to deliver skills for our own workforce to ensure business growth and sustainability. Following this, CEATA quickly expanded to offer apprenticeships and other programmes to engineering businesses across the East Midlands.

Our programmes include short courses for those wishing to learn basic engineering skills to gain employment, as well as apprenticeships and traineeships. All programmes are supported by our team of highly qualified and experienced tutors at our new academy site, and we are also able to deliver training on other business’ premises and sites.

We provide NVQ courses for those who have experience and expertise but lack a recognised qualification required to obtain site workers CSCS cards.

At CEATA, we care about our learners and our employers. As we are engineering specialists and part of a very successful manufacturing business, we understand the needs of businesses and the importance of hands-on skills.

Our training programmes run all year, and we offer multiple entry points throughout the year to suit your needs. Our specialist staff are industry experts and can guide both learners and employers through the training landscape.

Whatever your engineering training needs, get in touch today to find out more.
