TradeSkills4U, the UK’s leading electrical training company recently announced they were gearing up to launch a network of national centres. They have now confirmed that the first location will be Warrington and have already scheduled a number of electrical courses to be delivered in the North West Area. The first courses will be delivered in September by the same team of experienced instructors who have been delivering training at their head office just south of Gatwick Airport.

TradeSkills4U have chosen Warrington for a number of reasons. Their Director Carl Bennett grew up in there and knows the area well. As a local he realises the strategic importance of Warrington as it is easily commutable for students from Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, Stockport and Bolton. The facility is based just next to the junction of the M6 and M62 making it very accessible from all over the North West.

“Having grown up in the area it makes perfect sense for me to return back to my home town. This means I can use my existing knowledge when choosing the ideal location from which to deliver our courses. Being based next to Gatwick Airport in the south has been a major factor in our success as the transport links are fantastic. However that’s not the sole reason for my decision, I remember the first Ikea in the UK was based in Warrington, many people may think that seems odd but Ikea quite clearly knew exactly what they were doing when they chose to put their first store in the area.”

The Warrington location will act as a northern base from which TradeSkills4U can deliver their industry leading courses, however all the administration, course advice and management will still be covered by their head office in West Sussex. Trade Skills 4U recently appointed commercial director Sabarah Cursons to allow Carl to focus on expanding their national presence.

TradeSkills4U’s other main link to Warrington comes from an unlikely source. They sponsor Paul Wood the Warrington Wolves hard man who hit the headlines last year when he ruptured a testicle whilst playing in the Rugby League grand final. Carl regularly visits Warrington to see friends, family and his beloved Warrington Wolves play. He was even recently put through his paces by Paul in a private training session, an experience he is keen to repeat once he finally recovers from the first session.

“We knew Paul was a tough trainer but being a regular at the gym I didn’t think I would struggle too much. However his regime was pretty gruelling to say the least and I made it through by the skin of my teeth. I am keen to do it again but unfortunately I have a pretty busy dance card at the moment.”
It is clear that Carl does not shy away from hard work as he works to build what is already the UK’s leading electrical training company into a national brand. Carl originally established Trade Skills 4U when he was forced into early retirement from his role with the MET police’s SO19 due to a brain tumor. He has work tirelessly to build TradeSkills4U from the ground up to be a company whose reputation in the industry is second to none.
