Gloucestershire Engineering Training has been providing work-based learning in engineering for 40 years. We train apprentices in Mechanical, Electrical, Maintenance, Welding & Fabrication and also offer a dual skill programme for those employers who require multi-skilled individuals.
We are the only training facility in the County that is run by the Manufacturing & Engineering Industry for the Engineering Industry. We currently provide training services to the biggest engineering and manufacturing organisations within Gloucestershire across a diverse range of engineering specialisms from aeronautical to intelligent communication systems; from the production of drill bits to credit cards.
As a Charity, Gloucestershire Engineering Training is in business to deliver training and services to the meet the needs of its member companies. Senior representatives from a range of member companies make up organisation’s Management Board. These individuals play a vital role in influencing and shaping the future of the organisation whilst ensuring that the training and services provided are truly reflective of the business needs and demands.
We provide learners with the basic underpinning knowledge and skills required across all facets of engineering within their first year of training and then focus on their chosen career pathway or specialism once the learners have returned to their employer’s premises.
The engineering training centre is based on Corinium Avenue, Barnwood, and boasts just short of 22,000 square foot of workshop space and classrooms equipped with a variety of traditional machinery and the latest technology. Learners undertake the first year off-the-job element of their apprenticeship program at the training centre which can accommodate up to 115 apprentices in any one intake. Learners undertake a mixture of practical and academic learning and experience both off and on-the-job learning.
As a key provider for the Engineering and Manufacturing sector in Gloucestershire, GET is proud to sponsor the Stroud Business Awards.
