Cadcoe Story

Cadcoe is the ‘Construction and Design Centre of Excellence’, offering innovative and advanced tech training and Apprenticeships in CAD for the construction and engineering industry.

Cadcoe is a training provider based in the midlands. We work nationally to support people into careers within design engineering. Offering a fast-track apprenticeship in CAD for structural steelwork and architectural metalwork, we have opportunities with a range of employers including architects, structural engineers, tier 1 and 2 contractors offering both traditional and offsite construction services and draughting and detailing offices.

Established in 2011, Cadcoe aims to inspire a new generation of digital design engineers, with its innovative, industry-led training. We work closely with education providers, STEM networks and businesses, to raise awareness of skills, careers and technologies within design engineering. To date more than 100 young people have accessed the training, with 100% securing permanent employment.
