IPS are also a specialist Apprenticeship training provider and IPS Apprenticeships is the strand of our company that focuses on Apprenticeship training and recruitment.

Our Background

Formed as the training division of an international steelmaking group in 1986, IPS International was originally set up to provide specialist Engineering Maintenance training for modern industrial process plants.

IPS expanded rapidly to provide training in Management, Business Skills and Health & Social Care and became a limited company in 1997 – three years later, in 2000, we became independent through a management buyout. Since then IPS has achieved a range of accreditations including Matrix, OFSTED and Investors in People Gold.

Our product range continues to expand with our most recent addition being HGV maintenance – for our full product range check through our IPS International and Apprenticeships websites.
