New Oriel Road HQ for Bootle’s Training Strategies

A Merseyside-based training provider has launched its new headquarters.

Bootle MP Peter Dowd was on hand to officially open Training Strategies’ HQ with Sefton Council leader Ian Maher this week.

The 6,000 sq ft office, located on Oriel Road, now accommodates Training Strategies’ 60-strong team.

The company was previously based in Stopgate Lane, but with a bigger office the firm said it will be able to cater for more learners looking to enrol on its courses.

Training Strategies provides apprenticeship and pre-employment programmes for unemployed people, in addition to workplace-based programmes for North West businesses.

Peter Dowd MP said at the launch event: “The relocation of Training Strategies is good news for Bootle and the wider Sefton borough.

“We are witnessing regeneration and investment across the constituency - and the new tenants on Oriel Road is a further reminder of this.”

He added: “It’s great to see such a reputable company investing in our area; creating jobs for local people as well as helping young people into employment and I hope they continue their success in the future.”

Training Strategies works with more than 300 employers in the Liverpool City Region.

Barry Dunne, apprenticeships manager at Training Strategies, commented: “It was great to have the support of such important political leaders and stakeholders as we embark on a new chapter in Sefton.

“We are really excited with our move to the new unit as well as our expansion. Now that we have more space, it means we have the capacity to take on additional staff to support the growing numbers of people we are helping through apprenticeship and pre-employment programmes.”

He continued: “Demand for our on-site employment courses is also growing rapidly so hopefully we can be responsible for upskilling workforces across Merseyside. Our ambition is for individuals to secure high-skill, high-wage jobs which will help boost the Liverpool City Region economy.”
