About Martec Training
Martec Training is a privately owned training provider established in 1980 by Peter and Pauline Marson. The family had a long history in the motor trade and recognised that there was a crucial need for recruiting and training young people into the trade.
Based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Martec Training is a registered centre for the delivery of City & Guilds and the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) qualifications through apprenticeships. Martec Training is an independent school so we are also able to deliver qualifications to young people from the age of 14.
Today, Martec Training is one of the leading local training providers specialising in motor industry qualifications, Business Administration, Customer Service, Hospitality and Catering, Retail and Warehousing. Martec also manages a Study Programme and schools link that supports learners in developing their functional skills, achieving GCSE's and developing confidence, vocational awareness and employability.
Over the years, Martec Training's learners have won numerous awards, including IMI Runner Up Apprentice of the Year and numerous Staffordshire apprenticeship awards.
Location & Resources
Martec Training, previously at King Street, moved to a purpose built all on one site centre at the start of 2009. The Lyme Valley site allows for a much more accessible location for learners and enables Martec training to have all workshops, classrooms and offices on one main road site. Learners have referred to the new site as "Excellent", "Very realistic working environment" and "The best training facilities I have seen in the area".
Martec training has its own on site technical college, where the Technician Apprentices attend day release to attain their technical certificate as part of their qualification. The college has both workshop and classroom facilities to help develop the learner's practical and theoretical competence. Martec Training also has strong links with local colleges where some learners attend day release depending on which qualification they are registered for.
Martec Training has strong links with employers across the Staffordshire area who rely on us to supply them with apprentices and also provide opportunities for work experience for our study programme and traineeship department. All businesses involved with learners have to satisfy certain health and safety and employment criteria before learners are placed with them.
Martec Training's assessors and tutors are all qualified and have years of experience of the trade in which they deliver. The welfare of the learners on all of our schemes is very important to us and regular visits will be made by our welfare team to both learners and employers alike to ensure that things run smoothly and that everyone involved is happy and any problems are resolved.
Martec Training's staff pride themselves on their quality of service and their provision of up to date information, advice and guidance. Knowing what learners and employers need and fulfilling those needs means that together we can help you on the road to success.
We aim to select the right person for the right job in the hope that your dedication and hard work, along with our support and expertise, you will gain your qualification and succeed in your chosen career.
