Note from the Principal & CEO

Welcome to Martec Training

Our vision is to remain one of the leaders in the field of the motor industry and to establish a reputation for excellence across a wider range of disciplines.

We aim to keep learning relevant to today’s industry, educating learners in the most up to date technologies. Our tutors all have many years industry experience and are qualified to teach in the area they deliver, they will be there to support you throughout your journey with us.

Martec has been established nearly 40 years delivering quality Apprenticeships and Education to young people in Stoke and Staffordshire. We pride ourselves in delivering quality education with outstanding welfare support.

Over the last 10 years we have broadened our offer to include an extensive list of qualifications that can be delivered either at our training centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme or direct to employers at their place of work. Although we strive to be the leaders in the field of the motor industry we are also heavily focused on building an excellent reputation within the non-technical field.

For more information about the courses we offer, or to speak to our welfare and support team please do not hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to seeing you at our training centre to show you what we can offer.
