Lincoln College Group has secured a contract to train staff for Europe’s leading specialist electrical and telecommunications retailer.
FTSE-250 Dixons Carphone has awarded the apprenticeship levy contract to LCG after defeating many national and regional training providers.
This means that hundreds of new career opportunities will become available over the next five years in Newark and its surrounding areas.
Furthermore, the deal has increased LCG’s relationship with Knowhow, which has grown over the last decade incising the opening of Knowhow IT Training Suite at Newark College last year.
After securing the contract, LCG will now be recruiting and training for a variety of roles for the firm, including team leaders and senior managers.
Gary Headland, LCG CEO, said: “This is a really significant step in our relationship with Dixons Carphone.
“We have been working with Knowhow for some time now and our efforts to shape our training to meet the firm’s business needs is obviously working.
“We work hard to ensure our apprentices have the literacy, numeracy, communication and leadership skills required to not just get a job, but to build a lasting and fruitful career, something I know Dixons Carphone are passionate about.
“We look forward to advertising new vacancies in the Newark area over the next couple of weeks. These apprenticeships represent great career opportunities with a thriving firm that believes in investing in its people.”
