JTL opens new dedicated training centre in Aldercar
JTL has continued its investment in its own dedicated training centres by opening a new facility in Aldercar, Nottinghamshire. The latest centre is in Langley Mill, on the premises of Aldercar High School 6th Form Centre.
JTL Chief Executive Jon Graham said: “These new centres are the latest of a number of dedicated centres and joint ventures we have launched in the last couple of years. In many cases, we work happily in partnership around the country with colleges of education, which have the facilities and quality of personnel to deliver the ‘off the job’ aspects of work based learning. But there are some areas where, for a number of reasons, we feel it is appropriate to offer our own dedicated facilities to ensure that our learners get the quality of training they deserve and the level of support they need to benefit from the excellent results we deliver.
"This opportunity to grow our relationship with the school, is exactly the kind of open-minded partnership we are looking for, to allow us to offer genuine career opportunities for young men and women who see qualification as an electrician as the way forward in their careers.”
There are already four streams of electrical apprentices working at the centre – a total of 56 learners. This is likely to double over the next two years. The centre is based in the premises of Aldercar High School 6th Form Centre in Langley Mill, with whom JTL has been working for the past ten years. JTL now has its own centres or centres where they work alongside a partner organisation, operating successfully in Birmingham, Orpington, Norwich, Andover, Yeovil, Oxford – and now Langley Mill.
Claire Walters is the Assistant School Business Manager. “We’re delighted to be able to host this latest training centre for JTL within the school", she said.
"We see this and other activities we undertake as vital supporting activities for the local community and recognise the importance of offering high quality vocational training that allows practically minded young people to gain qualifications in professions that will help fill skills gaps that exist across the country.
"We see this as an exciting addition to the scope of what we can offer here at Aldercar High School.”
