Bromsgrove training provider appoints new business development manager

Martin Blakemore Interlearn

Bromsgrove training provider, InterLearn, has appointed  Martin Blakemore as Business Development Manager, specifically for its newly created Health & Safety training division.

Most recently, he has become well respected in the Apprenticeship sector by helping to develop England’s first Health and Safety orientated Apprenticeship standard which he is expanding and introducing to InterLearn customers where this would be of benefit.

Martin’s first priority will be to generate interest in and implement this SHE Technician Apprenticeship with relevant stakeholders. This will meet InterLearn’s ambitious performance goals to extend its service offer as well as delivering an excellent customer experience to both current and new organisations.

InterLearn’s Chief Commercial Officer, Michael Bradshaw said: “We’re so pleased with the appointment of Martin as the Business Development Manager for our Health & Safety provision.  Martin will also lead and run our short commercial course programmes in all aspects of health & safety, from manual handling to Mental Health First Aid, which again is a great complementary training service to our existing offer”.

Martin added: “Joining a national training provider like InterLearn suits my intentions perfectly to maximise the impact of these qualifications in the sector. Nobody should have to go to work and not come home again. When the Health and Safety Act was first introduced in 1974 this meant more lives were saved and the intention was that nobody should suffer an injury in the workplace. This is something I feel very strongly about and want to actively promote. I feel that offering this as part of an apprenticeship is the best position for me to be effective in achieving this and to deliver this standard to employees across all kinds of businesses.”
