Leading UK bus and rail operator Stagecoach Group has signed a three year deal with Interserve Learning & Employment (ILE) for the provision of apprentice and staff training.

ILE was awarded the contract after conducting a thorough assessment of Stagecoach’s training needs – throughout its separate divisions and more holistically, across the group as a whole. The collaboration aims to enhance the transport group’s delivery of training, staff development and new apprenticeship schemes.

Stagecoach, which has a workforce of over 34,000 people, runs a sector leading UK bus operation and rail brands including Virgin East Coast Trains and East Midlands Trains.

John Hamilton, Group Director of Pensions & Employee Benefits at Stagecoach Group plc commented:

“Our people are the most important part of our business, looking after our customers every day.  We are pleased to be working in collaboration with Interserve Learning & Employment and look forward to continuing and enhancing our achievements delivering more training and development and more successful apprenticeships across the Group.”
