Training centre

The Ipeco Training Centre opened in 2005 with its first intake of apprentices. It has full accreditation from City & Guilds, Highfield Qualifications and Excellence, and Achievement & Learning (EAL) to deliver a wide range of qualifications. The workshop facility has CNC and conventional machine tools, together with bench-fitting and mechanical inspection sections. The ICT suite includes CAD software and computers for CNC programming activities.

The training team is dedicated to helping all of our team players achieve their full potential. This is underpinned by a strong mentoring network across the business.


Career builder schemes

We have been training engineering apprentices since the late 1960s and you will often hear people at Ipeco describe them as the ‘life-blood’ of our company. We take great pride in the progress of our people and owe much of our continued success to those who have taken the decision to join us.

The decision to open our own training centre in 2005 was based around our wish to see young people being given the opportunity to develop a breadth of engineering skills that would suit their own attributes and interests. In addition to this, Ipeco is delighted to offer schemes for more experienced individuals that wish to change career or retrain in a new trade.

Our training programmes are unique and the range of outcomes are diverse. Trainees can become design engineers, buyers, accountants, assemblers, CNC machine tool setter/operators, programmers, taking positions of responsibility within the Company at all levels – supervisors, managers and even vice-presidents.
