JTL, one of the leading apprenticeship providers in England and Wales, opened its new training centre in Eastbourne on Thursday 8th February, which was attended by Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Candy Vaughan.

The opening of JTL’s 13th centre took place during National Apprenticeship Week (5th – 11th February), which celebrates the positive impact that apprenticeship qualifications have on local communities, employers and the industries they operate in.

Located at Highfield Industrial Estate, the centre will provide electrical apprenticeship training to help meet the growing demand for these skills in the local area. This expansion aligns with JTL’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of the electrical industry and facilitating the development of skilled professionals across England and Wales.

During the opening event, Councillor Candy Vaughan was accompanied by JTL’s Chief Executive, Chris Claydon, to explore the modern facilities of the new training hub and to meet the wider team, along with some JTL apprentices.

As 2024’s National Apprenticeship Week unfolds, the spotlight on JTL’s newest training centre serves as evidence for the transformative potential of apprenticeships in shaping the future of the building services engineering industry and the wider upskilling of the UK’s workforce.
