Fast Track 100

This firm was founded by Tim Addison and Trevor Dormedy in 2003 to provide retraining for workers who wanted to switch to the construction industry. The East Sussex company says it has now trained more than 5,000 students through its alternative apprenticeship programme. The firm is hoping to benefit from the growing renewable-energy market by offering training in solar-energy work. Backing from Bridges Ventures earlier this year should help the company to expand into new sectors. Its sales have grown 105% a year from £614,000 in 2005 to £5.3m in 2008.
