Pre-Employment Training Success Stories

Pre-Employment Training Success Stories

We’re very pleased to share some positive news this week in the success of our pre-employment course, and the amazing results achieved by our recent batch of learners.

Our 6-week course is designed to help and inspire people who are currently unemployed, giving them a chance to learn new skills and gain quality qualifications in engineering, providing them with the best start for their new career.

CEATA aims to provide valuable hands-on experience for our students, with two of our most recent learners, Ed and George, completing their course in December 2018. We’re happy to confirm that they will now be moving on to complete a full CEATA apprenticeship through Canal Engineering in the new year.

Another success story we’re proud to share is the achievement of James, who had made redundant in tough circumstances before coming to CEATA. We were able to help him rebuild his confidence and engineering skills, and after completing the course in May he is now on track to becoming a tutor.

So many of our successful learners are now working in local engineering businesses and firms, after excelling in our short term courses. We always aim to ensure that after completion of the course, there are plenty of job interviews, work placements and further training available.


Currently, we have some incredible employers waiting for people with engineering potential to join their teams, so if you’re looking for the next push in your career, get in touch.
