CEATA Academy, established by Canal Engineering in 2013 originally to improve their own employees skills and qualifications, quickly expanded to offer apprenticeships and other programmes to engineers of all levels across the East Midlands after building an amazing team of tutors, and over £250,000 of investment into the academy.
Now for the second year in a row, the academy been recognised in the prestigious Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, which is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices.
The list was announced at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place on 18 January at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
After a tough selection process the most exceptional apprenticeship employers from all of the National Apprenticeship Awards employer categories went forward to feature in the list, which showcases the breadth of employers who now offer apprenticeships.
