LMPQ Announce Expansion Plans With New Premises
Leading provider of Information Technology apprenticeships in the county, LMPQ have announced their plans for expansion by moving into St Andrews Building in Worcester.
Having been based in Worcester City for over 5 years’ at The Heart of Worcestershire College, the team at LMPQ Worcester Academy are now moving into larger premises this month as part of a long term growth strategy. With a second Academy in Birmingham, LMPQ is part of the Leaping Man Group of companies and delivers the highest quality Apprenticeships in Information Technology in their Certified Microsoft Imagine Academies. 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. Understanding and nurturing the needs of both apprentices and employers has ensured the success of LMPQ across the West Midlands, striving to give young people the springboard they need to succeed long term.
