A leading North-East training provider has relocated to a brand new office to house its growing number of staff.
County Durham firm Baltic Training Services, established in 2006 with a handful of employees originally in Hartlepool, now has a 68-strong workforce.
The company which provides government-funded and commercial training has helped more than 120 young people, aged between 16 and 24, get into employment in the last year alone through their apprenticeship programmes.
And its relocation to Baltic House at Aycliffe Business Park is set to continue their success story.
Baltic Training Services, which is part of the Peart Group of companies, initially supported the logistics sector in the North-East by providing qualifications and training.
But with training centres in Hartlepool, Sunderland, Leeds, Manchester and Preston, and its head office in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, it now supports a range of industries including IT, business, industrial, health and social care, energy and accounting on a variety of training programmes including apprenticeships, adult apprenticeships, employer-based training and pre-employment training.
Managing director Tony Hobbs, pictured at the firm’s new premises, Baltic House, is hoping to build on its rapid recent growth.
“Our services now cover a wide range of sectors and industries and we’re earning an outstanding reputation for delivering the best service,” said Tony.
“The growth of the company in the last five years has been phenomenal and the relocation to purpose-built premises in Newton Aycliffe will only strengthen it and enable us to further improve our services.
“We have many success stories to tell, with an excellent track record in advising young people, guiding them into an industry they’ll best achieve in and, ultimately and most importantly, getting them on track to a successful career in their chosen industry.”
Baltic Training boasts an increasing number of high-profile organisations amongst their client base, and the firm is proud to have achieved high standards of excellence for quality of service, achieving the Matrix Standard and having been recognised as a Grade 2 Ofsted provider.
