Group Horizon receive further £120,000 investment to support expansion plans

Group Horizon are excited to announce they have secured a third investment of £120,000 from the Finance for Business North East Growth Fund. As the only organisation to receive a third investment, the training company will be using the funds to support their national expansion programme.

Established in 2010, the Gateshead based firm now operates from a network of locations including, Gateshead, Teesside, Birmingham, London and Glasgow.

The national focus on apprenticeships and skills has seen demand for Group Horizon’s employer led courses increase.

Director Peter Behan said, “We’re continuing to invest heavily in research and development so that the courses we develop are shaped precisely to meet client requirements, and because we offer standardised systems and services regardless of location, major name firms trust that we’ll be able to deliver exactly what they want.

“Having sufficient working capital is crucial in enabling us to put everything in place that we need to be able to offer, which is where NEL’s involvement with the business has been invaluable, and there’s no way we could have achieved what we have without their support, both financial and advisory.”
