Gary Headland, Chief Executive of the Lincoln College Group, said, “The LCG comprises two balanced divisions: one in the UK which is effectively our three UK Colleges which deliver high quality further and higher education and training in Lincoln, Gainsborough and Newark.
The other division also delivers high quality education and training albeit through commercial contracts in the UK and overseas.
We focus intensely on delivering high quality and relevant education and training wherever we serve.
During the past five and half years, we have been building a large and strong international and commercial portfolio that not only creates a financial contribution to invest in our UK colleges but also adds to our overall quality, innovation and resilience. A classic win-win.
The financial contribution we make has enabled us to create exciting new programmes for the care, manufacturing, defence, policing and construction sectors in line with local and regional priorities.
I am so proud of our people working in our International and Commercial Division, led extraordinarily well by James Foster”.
Lincoln College Group Managing Director for the International and Commercial Division, James Foster, said: “We are delighted to be recognised with this award, which demonstrates the significant social and economic value our people add to communities locally and overseas.
Congratulations to the great firms also shortlisted in the International Business category and to all of the wider winners last night. It was a real celebration of Team Lincolnshire and the business strength and innovation of the County.”
