This cen­tre is home to Emtec, one of the indus­try’s lead­ing train­ing providers. 

The focus here is on rais­ing stan­dards, com­pe­tence and pro­fes­sion­al recog­ni­tion of indi­vid­u­als engaged in the glob­al auto­mo­tive industry.

Train­ing takes place in mod­ern, pur­pose built facil­i­ties where auto­mo­tive train­ing in con­junc­tion with motor man­u­fac­tur­ers has been tak­ing place for over 15 years. 

Emtec is also STEM assured, demon­strat­ing the qual­i­ty of the sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, engi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics pro­vi­sions. Stu­dents and staff have reg­u­lar oppor­tu­ni­ties to vol­un­teer at com­mu­ni­ty and edu­ca­tion engage­ment events which fea­ture the STEM shut­tle – a road legal elec­tric race car which high­lights that STEM skills are the foun­da­tions of any career. 

With all of these facil­i­ties, it is no sur­prise that the World Skills com­pe­ti­tion is reg­u­lar­ly host­ed on site! 

Sit­u­at­ed south of Not­ting­ham, it is the cen­tre to a vast range of train­ing cov­er­ing 100 years of auto­mo­tive tech­nol­o­gy from the restora­tion of war vehi­cles through to mod­ern hybrids. In addi­tion, Emtec also has a large foot­print in vehi­cle acci­dent repair.

The lead­ing train­ing facil­i­ties are the per­fect facil­i­ta­tor for Appren­tices, as well as ful­fill­ing pro­fes­sion­al train­ing needs for upskilling or learn­ing a new technology/​repair method. Col­lege staff and employ­ees of the top man­u­fac­tur­ers work hand in hand to pro­duce train­ing of the high­est cal­i­bre in real life sce­nar­ios. Present­ly, there are over 600 appren­tice­ship pro­grammes facil­i­tat­ed through the campus. 

Lead­ing auto­mo­tive brands cur­rent­ly based here include KIA Motors UK. KIA select­ed the loca­tion to be their UK Nation­al Acad­e­my for adult train­ing and appren­tice­ships. In addi­tion, Hyundai utilise Rud­ding­ton as their region­al cen­tre serv­ing the train­ing needs of staff across the deal­er­ships in the Mid­lands and North.
