We have two Academies in Greater Lincolnshire; one in Grimsby and another in Lincoln. We also have outreach centres in Gainsborough. We have positive links with the job centres in Lincolnshire, who refer clients to us on a weekly basis.

We are currently linking with other referral partners in the area to grow our referrals further and to meet the needs of as many people in the area as possible. We work closely with a range of large employers in manufacturing and production, which are prominent in the Grimsby area. We also have a great relationship with a national supermarket and a leading high street retailer, who offer work experience and interviews to clients achieving a qualification in our academies.

We work closely with our employers to make sure our courses will teach learners the relevant skills that they will require on the job, and the candidates that we are putting forward are the right match for them.

We provide each learner with one to one support to help them with; CV’s, cover letters, interview skills, filling in application forms, identifying jobs in their local labour market and completing calculations to ensure the opportunity given to them makes them better off in work financially.
