Abacus UK Training Ltd on the Road to Tender Success Thanks to Knowsley Growth Hub

Abacus UK Training Ltd is one of very few driver training companies in the North West who have their own dedicated training vehicles.

With offices and classrooms in a prominent location on Wilson Road, Huyton Business Park the site has a large yard area which has been surfaced and marked out to provide a safe area for vehicle manoeuvres. They offer a comprehensive range of LGV/HGV, PCV courses using a modern fleet of training vehicles and the company has its own DVSA testing site. Training is provided by experienced and qualified instructors and candidates have a very high pass rate.

In 2017 the company expanded its operation and launched the largest partnership in Logistics and Passenger Transport Training in the Northwest.   Aiming to continue this growth trajectory, company director Mary Carruthers contacted the Knowsley Growth Hub to find out what support was available to local businesses.

After an initial meeting with a Business Advisor, the company enrolled onto the Business Growth Programme and accessed support for tendering and bid writing.

Mary Carruthers said; “The one-to-one consultancy support we received was invaluable and included working on a ‘live’ tender opportunity which we really wanted to win. Subsequently, we were successful in the bid and have secured a major contract which will enable us to fully train up to 100 local people to become qualified PCV Drivers and place them in to full time employment. We would wholeheartedly recommend Kevin Earle (tender consultant) to anyone, not only due to the support in winning the bid, but also because we are utilising the documents and skills Kevin provided to tender for yet more work”.
