Lack of skills and qualifications made it very difficult to find specialist work...

Qualification: Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Fabrication & Welding

Luke came to CEATA through the government sponsorship scheme to better his skills and become an accredited welder.

With a lack of skills and the correct qualifications that employers demand, Luke found it very difficult to find work in his favored profession.

Before joining the course at CEATA, Luke’s knowledge and skills set was not up to the standard that is required in the differing industries today, which knocked his confidence significantly.

Hearing of the CEATA Training Academy through the Job Centre, Luke saw the light at the end of the tunnel.

Finding out about the Government Sponsored Course was very rewarding, allowing Luke to learn the fundamentals of welding and fabrication.

During the course Luke found the amount of knowledge challenging but with the valuable help from Gary and his assistant, the process of learning became easier and left him with a better understanding.

Now with Diploma in hand, a gain in confidence and ability, and a specialist in MIG and MAGs welding techniques, Luke is looking to find himself a place in a welding job and use his new learnt skills to start a platform for his new career.


Canal Engineering is proud to announce that Luke is now an employee at the company and has now started his Intermediate Apprenticeship Course at the CEATA Training Academy.
