Who are SETA?

The Southampton Engineering Training Association was established in 1967 specifically to train engineering apprentices.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and our Board of Trustees is drawn from local engineering companies. We employ a dedicated staff with great experience in their subject areas.

Our Training Centre in Millbrook, Southampton, was opened by Earl Mountbatten of Burma in 1969 and we have been training apprentices here ever since.

Today, we have over four hundred apprentices on course with us.
