The Training 2000 Engineering Awards saw around 150 apprentices, trainers and businesses celebrate their achievements throughout the last 12 months at the annual event.

With awards recognising the hard work of apprentices, businesses and staff towards developing the engineers of the future, the ceremony took place in the grand surroundings of the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Clayton-le-Moors.

Hosted by the 97.4 Rock FM Breakfast Show’s Darryl Morris, the event included an opening address from Training 2000 CEO Steve Gray, who marked the organisations 50th year by taking invited guests through the past half-century, utilising press cuttings and photos.

This was followed by a presentation from a Training 2000 apprentice working at Rolls Royce Barnoldswick about how his apprenticeship has developed him, and success in the WorldSkillsUK competition.

The awards were presented Blackburn with Darwen Council Chief Executive and Training 2000 board member Harry Catherall.

Also during the night donations were made towards Rock FM’s Cash for Kids charity, with the event raising over £550.
