Acorn Training expands footprint with new offices in Burton Upon Trent

(Wednesday 26 May 2021) Award-winning national training provider, Acorn Training, reveals plans to open a new office in Burton Upon Trent next month.  The new premises are in addition to the company’s existing offices in Coalville, Chesterfield, Hinckley, Loughborough and its headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.

The office is located on the ground floor of Milton House on Worthington Way, central to the town’s amenities and easily accessible by the public. The office will serve as a hub of support for the community where the Acorn Training team will deliver their employability, skills, training and youth service work.

Around 15-20 employees will be based from the office, providing tailored support to customers through the delivery of employability coaching and learning opportunities, enabling access to work within a range of different industries and sectors. Acorn Training will also deliver their comprehensive adult learning courses from this location; providing online and classroom-based teaching to help individuals to develop their skills for both life and work.

Following the company’s recent success in securing a place as a subcontractor on the new Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Restart Scheme, Acorn Training will use this new office to deliver intensive employability support as part of the East Central region contract, awarded to Jobs22, to provide support for job seekers in the East Midlands, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Luton and Stoke and Staffordshire.

In addition to offering employability, skills training and youth services, Acorn Training will be bringing their renowned holistic and person-centred approach to Burton; providing robust wrap-around support and breaking down barriers for those battling mental & physical health conditions, people from disadvantaged backgrounds, ex-offenders and minority groups.    

Commenting on the plans, Sophia Franzen, Operations Director, said “We are delighted to be expanding our footprint to Burton, bringing our strong core values and inclusive ethos to provide opportunity to individuals from all backgrounds. The expansion is an important step towards strengthening the delivery of our services across the Midlands and growing our success to help more people secure sustainable employment. The new office will serve as a welcoming and safe space to give the community access to information, advice and guidance for life and work. As the country recovers from the effects of the pandemic, Acorn Training will play a vital part in boosting the local economy in Burton and the surrounding area and continue to have a positive impact on the lives of the individuals and communities that we serve.”

Acorn Training are currently recruiting for a number of newly-created roles based in the Burton office which is planned to open in June 2021.
