Future Apprentices Attend Training 2000 Open Evenings

February 19, 2016

February has seen Training 2000 hold their annual open evenings – with hundreds of young people coming along to learn about building their career through apprenticeships and training.

With events held at Blackburn, Blackpool and Nelson, future learners had a first-hand look around the Training 2000 facilities and talked to training experts who deliver a wide variety of courses.

Young people also had the opportunity to talk with businesses currently on the hunt for apprentices – and apply for live vacancies on the night.

There was also plenty of fun activities across the open evenings – with a Batak machine available for people to test their reaction speed, a tyre change challenge where competitors removed and reattached the bolts which held a car tyre in place against the clock – and even a military field gun!

Current apprentices were on hand to talk through their experiences, whilst demonstrating the skills they have learnt both through training and in the workplace.

An example of this was seen as engineering apprentices gave away brass ‘Rolos’ as a Valentine’s Day gift – and showcased the full process which is necessary to create them.

At the Blackburn event there was also the opportunity to complete a loyalty card – gaining a sticker for each Training 2000 department by visiting the relevant stand to learn more – with a variety of prizes up for grabs.

Steve Gray, CEO of Training 2000 said: “These events are a great opportunity for young people to see the wide range of courses that we offer, talk to our learners about their experiences and meet with businesses who are currently looking for new starters to take up a range of apprenticeship positions.

“Delivering increased skill levels and higher qualifications is an important part of the work we do, and this is also an opportunity to showcase how Training 2000 inspires learners to achieve them.”
