New JTL training centre opens in Norwich  

JTL, a leading provider of apprenticeships in England and Wales, unveiled its newest training centre in Norwich on Friday 17th November. The centre was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Councillor James Wright. 

Norwich is the home of JTL’s very first training facility, which opened seven years ago. However, with the growing demand for apprenticeships in the local area, JTL recognised the need for a larger and more advanced centre.

The £1.5 million investment highlights JTL’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of electrical and plumbing and heating apprentices. 

The Norwich-based training centre will not only provide apprenticeship opportunities for the region, but will also be joined by JTL’s subsidiary company, Develop, to offer short courses covering compliance, technical and safety training. The Develop team joined JTL for the Norwich centre opening, discussing their line of work and answering any queries around ACS Gas, Electrical, Gas Distribution and Street Works training programmes. 

Accompanied by JTL’s Chair, Sir John Low, and Chief Executive, Chris Claydon, Councillor James Wright toured the new training hub, and took the opportunity to meet with other members of the JTL team and current apprentices.

Sir John Low, Chair of JTL, said: “JTL is a far-reaching community that aims to focus not only on the needs of its apprentices, but also of local communities, employers and our trainers too. The opening of this centre in Norwich perfectly illustrates our commitment to all stakeholders involved, as well as to the continuous growth and development of the training we provide for future electricians and plumbing and heating engineers.” 

Chris Claydon, Chief Executive at JTL, added: “We are delighted to return to Norwich to unveil our brand-new training centre. This £1.5 million investment is a testament to our resolute commitment to meeting the growing demand for apprenticeships and ensure that we are providing the correct facilities to meet these needs.”
