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

Canal Engineering established the training academy 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.

We are listed on the Education and Skills Funding Agencies Register of Training Organisations (ROTO) and Register of Apprentice Training Providers (RoATP).
