News: Rotherham training business to close


Rotherham-based Brinsworth Training has ceased trading after experiencing falling revenues.

A leading engineering and manufacturing training provider, its training premises at Templeborough boast an extensively equipped machine shop along with specialist equipment for Mechanical Engineering, Electrical, Electronics, PLC, Instrumentation & Control, CAD CAM and Rapid Prototyping.

A meeting of members and creditors is due to be held in respect of Brinsworth Training Ltd of Sheffield Road, Rotherham, on 6 December 2016 to discuss the proposed liquidation of the business under the supervision of Gareth Rusling and Ashleigh Fletcher of business advisers Begbies Traynor in Sheffield.

A statement via the business advisers said that the business experienced falling revenues leading to cash flow problems making it unviable to continue trading.

The shareholders will vote on a resolution to place the business into a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) and the chosen liquidators will then seek to recover revenue for the creditors by marketing the business' assets, which is mainly engineering equipment used for training purposes.

The business has already ceased trading with all 15 staff having been made redundant. The apprentices being supported, mainly through the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), will be found alternative trainers by the SFA.

In 1995 the EITB (Engineering Industry Training Board) closed down, leaving a great need for apprenticeships training. Three former employees of the EITB recognising the demand for this knowledge and in 1998 seeing there was a niche in the marketplace formed a centre for training in engineering. Brinsworth Training was wholly owned by managing director Mick Crossley, a former Rolls-Royce manufacturing engineer, and worked with many of the region's top firms such as Firth Rixson, AESSEAL, Premier Foods, KP and Safestyle.

In 2014, the Academy of Manufacturing and Engineering Excellence (AMEE) was established with the target of training up to 800 young people and placing 300 jobless into apprenticeships.

It's good they are gone because they didn't help me get a job and making excuses

Having worked there it comes as no surprise, they wouldn't change or listen. Shame
