Town training firm wins major contract

A HARTLEPOOL training company has won a major contract with one of the North’s largest transport providers.

Amacus, which provides leadership and management training, has won the deal with Nexus who own and manage the Tyne & Wear Metro.

The two-year contract will see the Amacus deliver leadership and management training to around 60 managers.

Nexus is investing £385m in its infrastructure, renewing and upgrading the Metro system, and the training programme will ensure its people have the key skills to match these major developments.

As well as being based in Hartlepool, Amacus recently opened a second office within the Skills Academy for Sustainable Manufacturing and Innovation in Sunderland.

Christine Hall, managing director at Amacus, said: “We worked really hard to win the contract with Nexus. It took us around nine months from start to finish, but we are delighted to have won the company over with our programme offer.

“We’re pleased to be working with an organisation like Nexus. We’re sure our training will have a positive outcome for their staff and the future of the organisation.”
