Peterhead Engineers Development Limited (PEDL) in conjunction with Peterhead & District Group Training Limited has been involved in the training of local engineers since 1967. In 2004 the company relocated to Wellbank Industrial Estate on the outskirts on Peterhead where the new custom-built premises (known simply as The Training Centre) include a large state of the art training workshop, 2 classrooms (which may also be available for hire) and 2 computer suites.
Since 1967 numerous engineering apprentices employed by local companies have been indebted to PEDL for their training by a dedicated team of fully qualified and experienced trainers and assessors to gain their qualifications. Many of these apprentices are now employed in senior roles in the engineering industry locally, nationally and internationally.
Although engineering training remains the primary function of the centre, PEDL has added SVQ and NC Business Administration and Warehousing Level 5 to its portfolio.
PEDL takes pride in providing a full modern apprenticeship programme for businesses in their local area and is fully supported by Skills Development Scotland (SDS).
