A young person from Blackburn has secured an engineering apprenticeship after completing the Steps to Success programme at Training 2000.

After attending an open day earlier in the year, Isaac applied for the programme which helps those looking for an apprenticeship or other job role increase their key skills in maths, english and general employability.

Increasing in confidence throughout, Isaac made very good progress and due to his interest in engineering he was put forward for a 2 week work placement at Lancashire Saw, who are based in Blackburn.

Excelling during his placement, Isaac showed he was a team player and really grew into the role. After successfully completing the placement, Isaac was offered an apprenticeship, which he has recently started.

Isaac said:

“It has been a great journey for me, developing my skills and confidence – I can’t wait to continue my career journey with my employer and also continue my learning with Training 2000.”

David Ball at Lancashire Saw added:

“We saw great potential in Isaac during his placement, and were delighted to be able to take him on as an apprentice after he became a member of the team so quickly.

“We’re looking forward to helping Isaac develop within Lancashire Saw and carry on with the great work he has delivered so far.”
