The new site ensures that LMPQ can now increase their recruitment of young people across Worcestershire, helping support the next generation of IT professionals and working in partnership with local businesses to tap into fresh new talent. David Hutchinson, Commercial Director at LMPQ explains – “As we are continually expanding our apprenticeship recruitment by identifying the highest quality of motivated young people, it was a natural progression to expand our training academy in Worcester City Centre. Our new training academy at St. Andrews House, close to Worcester Corn Market, gives us the ideal site for us to develop our state-of-the-art training facility.” David adds “We’re busy getting the new facility ready for the next intake of students at the start of 2019 and we’re already inundated with applications. I’m proud to take LMPQ forward into next year and I’m looking forward to further developing our relationships with local businesses”. A Grand Opening of the new academy which takes place next month marks an incredible year for LMPQ and the Leaping Man Group. In Worcester alone over 160 apprenticeships have taken place or are currently being undertaken. By maintaining the high standards of work-related vocational training, LMPQ can provide Apprenticeships in Information Technology that allow young people to develop and thrive, giving them life long skills they can use in the business world.

LMPQ Proud Supporters of NEW Charity 4 O’clock Cake Event

Edwards Trust Cake Club
With a long history of supporting Birmingham based child bereavement charity Edward’s Trust as patrons, LMPQ show their continued dedication for the charity’s latest fundraising events, ‘4 O’clock Cake’. LMPQ who are the largest and most recognised provider of Information Technology apprenticeships across the West Midlands, have been patrons to local children’s charity Edward’s Trust for over 5 years. In this time the organisation has raised thousands of pounds for the trust whose Head Office is in Edgbaston. The novel ‘4 O’clock Cake’ event has been launched as a new fundraising initiative to not only bring in much needed financial support to the charity, but to highlight the importance of togetherness, communication and understanding. David Hutchinson, Commercial Director at LMPQ explains “Edward’s Trust holds a very special place in our hearts as we see the amount of hard work that goes into supporting families who have tragically lost children or children who have lost parents. Reaching out to Edward’s Trust all those years ago gave us the opportunity to give back to the local community in a truly unique way. Their new ‘4 O’clock Cake’ events have a very special story behind them which dates back to 1991 when Edward’s Trust first opened as Edward House providing ‘home from home’ support for parents whose children were being treated in Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It became a ‘tradition’ that at exactly 4 O’clock every day cakes were baked and everyone in the building stopped and came together to share time, giving a moment for reflection.” David adds, “We’ve fully embraced the new scheme and have attended our first 4 O’clock Cake event at Edward’s Trust already! We’re planning to hold similar events in both of our academies in Birmingham and Worcester next month as part of our ongoing commitment to the cause.” LMPQ offers IT apprenticeships at their state-of-the-art training academies in both Birmingham and Worcester. Providing high-quality teaching and work-based training programmes, their IT apprenticeships are designed to provide young people with qualifications that will spring-board them into long term employment. Working with highly motivated students in the fast-paced world of IT, LMPQ is the leading IT apprenticeship provider in the West Midlands. Working with Child Bereavement Charity Edward’s Trust has strengthened the bond LMPQ has in the local community. Edward’s Trust, who will celebrate their 30th anniversary next year, was founded by Peter and Hilary Dent in 1989 in memory of the son Edward, who died aged 7 of cancer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The charity provides holistic family bereavement services supporting children, young people and parents across the West Midlands.
