Call to Former Apprentices as Training 2000 Turns 50

April 27, 2016

As Training 2000 turns 50, former learners who completed their apprenticeships through the Group Training Association are being urged to come forward and share their story about what happened next.

Now one of the largest GTA’s in England, Training 2000 was created when Blackburn and District Group Training Association merged with Accrington and District Group Training Scheme Merged.

The organisation also saw Pendle Training, TDS (North West) Ltd along with Blackpool and Fylde Training become part of Training 2000 – which now has several sites across the North West of England and operates UK-wide.

To celebrate the last half-century, Training 2000 is calling on their former apprentices who have completed courses across a range of industries to get in touch – from engineers and dental nurses, managers and mechanics, share your story about your own career journey, and how Training 2000 played a part in its development.

Steve Gray, CEO at Training 2000 said: “Over the course of the last 50 years Training 2000 has always maintained a firm focus on the development of people and businesses.

“Whether this is through the delivery of apprenticeships across a number of sectors, or our business services training working with organisations as a whole, our strength is the relationships we build and the experience we bring from our starting point way back in 1966.

“We are really looking forward to hearing what stories former learners have to tell, and how their careers have developed after gaining that initial step on the ladder with us.”
