Automotive Apprentice Success

Matthew from Abbotts in Blackburn and Dominic from HB Panelcraft Ltd in Preston recently took part in the regional Work skills event for Body repair in Goole. The have worked extremely hard in preparing for this event and everyone here at Training 2000 has their fingers crossed for them.

Both learners performed exceptionally well and have the chance to compete in the UK skills live at the NEC Birmingham in October! This was the first of many goals for these talented apprentices and we are so excited that we get to be a part of it!

The level 3 learners had their repairs, welding and fitting skills tested in an intense day at the Nationwide training centre. As a result of their hard work, determination and skill both learners have now put themselves within a chance to be entered to the World skills live at the NEC!

Training 2000 and their employers wish them all the best in their quest and will be following their journey every step of the way!

Congratulations EVERYONE at Training 2000!

This is a shout out to everyone at Training 2000!

Congratulations to EVERYONE here at Training 2000 for maintaining the Quality, Health, Safety and Environment standards across the site over the past year!
We have been able to ensure that we provides sufficient evidence to the auditors which delivered an excellent audit report yesterday and this has meant that we have maintained our certification to all 3 standards , ISO14001, ISO9001 & OHSAS18001.

The auditors identified only 2 minor non-conformances and 2 observations. They also identified several opportunities for continual improvement. This is something that we are keen on auctioning as soon as we have a plan together!

We just wanted to give the teams at Training 2000 a shout out and some recognition for this incredible achievement!

Real Life Story: Preston City Council

Three apprentices from Preston City Council and Harris Museum, are celebrating the successful completion of their Level 2 Customer Services apprenticeships. Not only that but they are the first three to complete the new style of apprenticeships since the Apprenticeship Reforms were introduced in May 2017.

On completion of their apprenticeship, Charlotte and Abigail have been offered full time positions within the company, and Liya has progressed and is now studying for her Master’s Degree.

Jonny, a Training 2000 Career Development Advisor said, “I am so proud of my learners and all that they have achieved throughout their apprenticeships. Not only that, but two of them also obtained distinctions in their end results which shows the high standards they set themselves and were able to achieve. Preston City Council is a very supportive employer who consistently employ apprentices throughout the business and are a great ambassador for apprenticeships.”

Steph, the Learning and Development manager for Preston City Council added, “The 3 apprentices have worked very hard to achieve this qualification. It is great for us as an organisation to see the progress the apprentices make and for them to go on to bigger and better things.”
