Technical Academies

A CNC machining centre for milling

UK Network of
Technical Academies

The Engineering Technology Group (ETG) has invested £6m into creating a network of Technical Academies located across the UK and Ireland, delivering engineering apprenticeships.

Working in partnership with leading training provider In-Comm, we have developed 15 state-of-the-art facilities that will give companies and individuals access to world class training on the latest CNC machine tools and precision technology.

It is an employer-led response designed to meet the skills gap head on, a response that is also being backed by 14 technical partners.

Each Technical Academy is located on the site of a strategic manufacturing partner and will offer upskilling opportunities, SME access to new technology and, in some centres, the full apprenticeship curriculum.

“We can’t sit back and wait for the Government to sort out the skills gap… our Technical Academies are the first step in addressing this issue and will give employers the chance to shape the training to match their needs. It’s time we made Engineers Champions!”

Martin Doyle, Managing Director of ETG
