WHY CHOSE EAS MECHANICAL?
The training centre was opened to combat the lack of options for the industry in the area and further afield. Introducing a non-complicated vision to training with the schemes availiable EAS ensure that you are getting the best out of your apprentice and investment.
Working closely with companies, EAS have implemented subtle improvements to the existing schemes to enhance the apprentices knowledge and practical skills which will make them more cost effective for you to employ in a quicker timeframe. Running 12-1 groups EAS can focus more on delivery given a greater overall experience to learning and development. Utilising leather chairs and encouraging the learner to have a cup of tea whilst lectures are being delivered - we have found moving young candidates in to a more adult environment increases development.
We have time-served Lecturers who really have been onsite, none of this teaching from 'the book'. Nor do we run out of tools or materials! How can we when we have secured unbelievable deals with the likes Ridgid and having Plumbing merchants at either side of us.
Our commitment to you the employer means that by 10.30am each morning you will know if your apprentice(s) has not attended college or is late. We will review progression with you personally or with a supervisor every 12 weeks or termly so you know exactly what has been delivered and what will happen in the future. You can then tell us what concerns if any you have so we can help you put them right. We even encouraged you to pop in to the centre for a cup of tea and a chat so your apprentice knows we work together for the benefit of everyone. You wont get that type of service at other established centres........ and our results speak for themselves. We are currently running at 92% pass rate for all those who have attended EAS, that's way above national benchmarks.
Based in heart of Northampton, the EAS Mechanical Ltd training centre offers government funded apprenticeships in Plumbing and H&V (Heating and Ventilation), Building Services Engineering (BSE ONC) and Electro-technical for individuals employed both locally and further afield. All qualifications are delivered to Level 3 and are enhanced by various manufacturers showcasing new products or technology. We encourage candiates to enrol in regional competitions to really showcase their Skills that may get them on an international journey......
Theory delivery is classroom based where the candidates can enjoy leather seats, a cup of tea and maybe a biscuit whilst they learn. The workshop is equipped with the newest Ridgid tools on the market and has all the materials ready to be used to hone those skills. Please feel free to pop in to have a look around..........

“I am delighted to have opened this centre in Northampton. I believe this is a much-needed resource for the town and having been through the whole process myself I believe we can engage not only with the candidates but also with employers at a level that will benefit all. My aim is to help train the area’s future generation of craftsmen and women to the highist standard needed within the wider industry, whilst also helping local employers have greater choice and input into the training they can offer their staff and themselves. Working with and getting the support from local employers shows that EAS are doing good things and getting the results employers want. Not only are the employers taken notice of EAS but also manufacturers. We have support from Ridgid Tools, Worcester Bosch, Gledhill, Bristan and MagnaClean to name a few."
