THE new business training division of Burnley College has been opened.

Themis, which will offer a wide range of business training and apprenticeship programmes, was launched to a host of leading employers and the next generation of successful apprentices at a special open event.

A number of business and industry specialists attended the event, offering advice to prospective and hopeful apprentices on careers and training in a variety of fields.

Mr Hugh Bramwell, chief executive of Themis, said: “We are grateful to our business partners for joining us in providing a first rate advice event for prospective apprentices. We operate one of the largest and most successful apprenticeship schemes in Lancashire and the involvement of employers is crucial in providing the best possible guidance and career opportunities.

“In addition to training today’s workforce, we have a responsibility to help deliver the employable workforces of tomorrow. Themis is dedicated to the requirements of the business community and we pride ourselves on listening and responding to individual customer requirements in order to provide flexible, high quality business training and apprenticeships.

“I have every confidence that Themis can work hand in hand with our local business leaders to give young people the employability skills that they require, and that through them we can secure a bright and prosperous future for Burnley.”
