Trade Skills 4U set for expansion with new £1m Yorkshire site

Carl Bennett

Electrical training course provider, Trade Skills 4U (TS4U), has announced the launch of a new state-of-the-art training facility in Leeds, as it looks to target aspiring electricians in the Yorkshire and North East regions.

Established in 2005, the Gatwick-headquartered business specialises in electrical training, delivering courses to over 3,000 students per annum.

It currently boasts some of the highest pass rates in the UK, and is the first electrical training organisation to be accepted into the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Centre of Excellence.

The new 16,000 sq ft Leeds premises will be TS4U’s fourth training centre following its success in Gatwick, Central London and Warrington, and will boost national headcount from 50 to 55 employees. The facility will house advanced training classrooms built to the highest of specifications and will be equipped with the latest technology.

TS4U aims to develop individuals with no previous electrical experience by offering the widest range of electrician courses in the UK for new entrants. It also facilitates courses for qualified electricians looking to move into new areas of electrical work.

In 2017, the company was backed by Palatine Private Equity’s £100m Impact Fund, which targets businesses with a positive social and/or environmental impact.

Carl Bennett, CEO of Trade Skills 4U, said: “We have conducted thorough research to ensure that this new site is perfectly located and easily accessible for our students in both Yorkshire and the North East. From the success of our existing centres, it is clear that there is demand across the UK for our services and we are excited about opening our newest facility in May.

“We recruit only the best and most experienced people to ensure our students receive first class knowledge and advice from professional tutors who have a passion for what they do. The next step is to make our presence known across the rest of the UK and ensure our services are accessible to all aspiring electricians.”

The first courses are now live to book online, starting from the May 14 2018. TS4U will be holding a launch day on May 9 at Phoenix House, Hawthorn Park, Coal Road, Leeds, LS14 1PQ, where potential students can register for free taster sessions as well as a tour of the facility.
