MP Kate Hollern Visits our Blackburn Apprentices

November 10, 2015

MP for Blackburn Kate Hollern has visited our Blackburn apprentices at our headquarters to celebrate their skills.

Kate was formerly the leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council and contracts manager at a college, leading their work-based learning arm, so has a keen interest in developing young people through training.

Steve Gray, CEO of Training 2000 said of the visit;

“We are very honoured that the MP came to visit our Blackburn apprentices today. Group Training Associations like ourselves were recently praised by Ofsted and we want to continue this good work by forging partnerships with employers, the community and people like Ms Hollern.”

After meeting with young people to discuss how they are finding their current programmes and how they see the future development of Apprenticeships, Kate took a tour around the recently updated facilities, which include a soon to be opened Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing Centre.

Ms Hollern said;

“I was delighted to visit Training 2000 and hear about the good work being done by Steve Gray and the team. I was also impressed to hear from a number of young people who are receiving training. The role that Training 2000 is providing, in creating young people who are ready for the world of work, is invaluable. I look forward to working with the group in the future.”
