Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) in partnership with Combilift have successfully delivered the OEM Engineering Technology Traineeships for over 5 years with 80% successfully gaining employment from the course.

The course did not stop and Combilift did not close due to COVID-19.  This was one of the few courses that continued to run with work based learning in Combilift and classroom based learning in delivered in a blended way through Monaghan Institute and remote classes.

Michelle Baker Recruitment Officer for CMETB noted that “a college course is not the only way to become qualified.  The delivery method of the traineeship means individuals can achieve a qualification whilst gaining valuable work experience within Combilift.  So many individuals complete a 3 or 4 year degree, get into debt and do not have the work experience to support their academic qualification.  The knowledge and skills received on the course are current, practical and relevant to Combilift and the wider labour market”.

The traineeship is suitable for mature individuals with life and work experience who are now considering a different career, with the confidence of employment opportunities at the end of the course.

With a Traineeship there are no course fees, PPE and tool kits are provided to students and individuals may also be eligible for a range of financial support including a training allowance or company bursary, travel and meal allowances.  This Traineeship is suitable for school leavers and mature students who want to live locally, become qualified locally and gain full time employment locally.

CMETB are now recruiting for 2021 Traineeship.  Applications are welcome from those in existing employment who are seeking to upskill or re-skill in this industry.
Please join our online event on Tuesday 23 March @ 7pm
