The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) has facilitated a £40,000 loan to training services provider NC Training, marking NPIF’s first investment in the Cumbria region since it was launched earlier this year.

The investment was made by NPIF - BFS & MSIF Microfinance, an NPIF product fund managed by Business Finance Solutions (BFS) in partnership with MSIF.

Based in Barrow-in-Furness with an additional office in Workington, NC Training provides training and apprenticeship services on behalf of local colleges and training organisations. Its training services cover a variety of topics from IT and management to health and social care. With 11 years’ experience in the field, the business provides training to businesses in a range of sectors including, pharmaceutical, education and healthcare.

Led by director Nicola Cassley, NC training currently employs 32 staff and caters to 700 learners across the UK. 

The investment will help the company to expand its existing team with the addition of at least seven new staff to support the number of learners gained from recently secured contracts. NC Training will also use some of the funding to invest in IT equipment required to enhance the training services they offer.
