Chubb launches National Centre of Excellence for Apprenticeship Training

Partnering with Blackburn-based training provider Training 2000, Chubb now offers a flexible apprenticeship scheme that is scalable depending on the requirements of the business.

From its training facility in Blackburn, Training 2000 is currently delivering apprenticeships for 29 Chubb employees from across the UK in Level 2 electrical engineering and Level 3 fire and security, with plans to include apprenticeships in mechanical fire protection (sprinklers) in the future.

Dave Millett, Head of Learning and Development, explains how Training 2000 is helping to deliver its staff training requirements.

"Our apprentices are key to the long-term future of the business, and we are committed to helping those new entrants to the fire and security industry develop the right skills." Millett says. "Working with Training 2000 allows us to scale the training appropriately to meet the current and future requirements of the business. We considered many training providers across England before choosing Training 2000 as our apprenticeship training partner, and have been impressed by its experience and facilities."

Chief Executive of Training 2000 Steve Gray added, "It is fantastic for us to be working closely with such a well-respected company as Chubb, and we are very much looking forward to developing our offering in this sector to accommodate even more apprentices in the near future."
