Stoke-based apprenticeship provider PM Training has relaunched as Achieve Training, undergoing a total brand refresh. 

The training business, which is Staffordshire’s leading independent apprenticeship provider for young people, has unveiled the new name alongside an updated logo, website and a revitalised business strategy and service offer. 

The Achieve Training transformation is being overseen by Dan Canavan, whose father Sean started the business as Project Management Ltd in 1982and who stepped into a leading role as Executive Director of PM Training last year. 

Dan said: “Ever since my dad opened the doors nearly 30 years ago, we’ve had a proud history of supporting local young people to realise their potential. Our core purpose isn’t changing – we still offer outstanding training and support services to help people to fulfil their career ambitions – but Achieve Training is the next step of the journey for us. 

“The world has changed, businesses around us are changing, and the way young people learn, develop, and see their place in the working environment is changing. We felt that our name no longer represented what we do.
