Training chief Jim Hargreaves, chief executive of Blackburn-based Training 2000, was awarded the MBE in April 2003.

The former pupil of Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Blackburn, served as an apprentice with English Electric in Clayton-le-Moors, later joining British Northrop and in 1967 joined the Blackburn Group Training Association. He later became chief executive of Training 2000, formed by the merger of the Blackburn group and its counterpart in Accrington.

"I was pleasantly surprised and it is nice to be recognised. But this is something which should be shared with all the people who have supported me over the years and who have helped make Training 2000 what it is today," said Jim, of Rishton, a chartered engineer.
