iMET is an advanced technical training centre, based in the heart of the Alconbury Weald Enterprise Campus, conceived from an identified need to deliver higher-level training for the manufacturing, built environment and science & technology sectors.
Based on the new Enterprise Campus at Alconbury Weald, the iMET facility was fully funded by the Cambridgeshire Peterborough Combined Authority through the local growth deal fund and the land gifted to the project by Urban and Civic. Many partners have contributed to the success of the building project including Huntingdonshire District Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridgeshire Peterborough Combined Authority, Cambridge Regional College and Peterborough Regional College.
Our recently constructed £10.5m facility has been designed to provide an ideal environment for teaching both theoretical and practical skills and bringing businesses together from a range of different sectors, industries and disciplines for the purpose of equipping current and future generations with industry-relevant knowledge, skills and behaviours.
Against the backdrop of increasing competition, skills shortages and a faster-than-ever rate of change within almost all sectors of the British economy, iMET aims to meet the needs of the region while supporting the expansion of technical industries by offering a flexible, business-driven approach to skills training.
We officially opened our doors in summer 2018 and welcomed our first cohort of apprentices this Autumn.
