It works with more than 400 employers across the North West as well as national brands such as Heinz, HMRC and Royal Mail.
In recent times Training Strategies has won contracts for the delivery of apprenticeships with Government and the Skills Funding Agency. The company says 80.2% of learners achieve their qualification – significantly higher than the national average.
It’s new base is located opposite Bootle Oriel Road railway station and company bosses believe this will prove to be a significant incentive for applicants for its pre-employment programmes as well as enhance its on-site training offer.
Training Strategies’ apprenticeships manager Barry Dunne said: “Since our inception in 2008, we have had a successful period in North Liverpool but the time has come to move to pastures new.
“Now that we have more space, it means we have the capacity to take on additional staff to support the growing numbers of young people we are putting on apprenticeship programmes.
“Demand for our on-site employment courses is also growing rapidly so hopefully we can be responsible for upskilling workforces across Merseyside.
