Growth Award entrant – Training and Business Solutions Ltd

Steve Rushton only began trading as Training and Business Solutions Ltd in November 2022 but his vast experience in training and development across diverse industry sectors meant the business was able to hit the ground running.

In just 18 months Training and Business Solutions Ltd has supported 186 people into work and/or supported employees to learn skills and develop their roles within a business. It has worked with 87 companies, public sector and third sector organisations to either recruit or upskill their teams.

Bucknall-based Training and Business Solutions Ltd was founded with the employment needs of the people of Staffordshire at its heart.

Steve works tirelessly to ensure as many people as possible have knowledge of the employment options and opportunities available. He is a Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire apprenticeship ambassador and allocates time whenever possible to hosting talks and workshops.

He speaks regularly at school career events. During National Apprenticeship Week Steve gave a talk in a school assembly each day and engaged with parents and business owners.

In March 2024 Steve led a workshop in collaboration with Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce to empower the construction sector and build a plan to tackle skill shortages. This helped businesses working in construction to learn about the Local Skills Improvement Plan, Apprenticeship funding and CITB Grants.

Steve’s support for young people and determination to educate anyone who wants to listen about work opportunities and apprenticeships has even led to him giving Sunday lunchtime talks to parents and grandparents at local sports and social clubs.

Apprenticeships and training courses supported by Training and Business Solutions include accounts, administration, barbering, bricklaying, carpentry and joinery, chef apprenticeships, data technicians, events, gas engineering, vehicle technicians, financial services, mechanics, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing and more.

Prior to funding Training and Business Solutions Ltd Steve was Director of Partnerships at Achieve Training and the Aspire Group for 12 years and Training Manager for PM Training for three years.

Training and Business Solutions Ltd has entered the Growth category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
