Open Evenings Help Young People ‘Find Their Future’

February 14, 2017

Training 2000 held several open evenings earlier this month, with young people eager to learn about how starting an apprenticeship could be the best way for them to find their future and start building a successful career.

Held across both the Nelson and Blackburn sites, the events provided an opportunity for visitors to view the facilities, discuss their interests with expert staff and meet employers from across the region.

Future apprentices and parents also had the chance to tour the £1.2m Advanced Manufacturing & Automation Centre and see the pioneering, state-of-the-art equipment in action.

Discussing building successful careers in engineering, dental, scaffolding, business, finance, cyber security and automotive, there was also the chance to discuss full time courses and our military preparation programme.

Steve Whitehead, Director of Education & Skills at Training 2000 said:

“The open evenings were a great success, it was exciting to see visitors so engaged with both our staff and a number of employers – there was a real buzz at each event with potential apprentices excited about the range of opportunities available.

I talked to a number of visitors who saw an apprenticeship as the perfect way for them to start their career as soon as possible – getting into work, building experience whilst also gaining new skills and knowledge along the way.”

There are a number of apprenticeship vacancies live on the Training 2000 site – search them and apply today!
