Providing bespoke training for any industry, ranging from healthcare to factory training, LCM Training, in St Neots, started trading in June this year and is run by the Stent family.
Louise Stent is the Managing Director, Michael Stent is the CEO and chief trainer having qualified as a nurse 35 years ago and spent most of his working life in Occupational Health. He specialises in First Aid training. Then there is Cathryn Stent who not only trains but also organises the Occupational Health side of the business, that is when she is not wearing her other hat as a Practice Nurse at two local surgeries. Cathryn also qualified as a nurse 35 years ago and enjoys training Health Care Workers who want to work within the National Health Service.
Last but not least there is Rob, a key member of the team who at 60cm tall is a puppet used by the trainers to enhance the experience especially when delivering courses such as ‘Moving & Handling’ and the ‘Role of the Care worker’.
“Whether a company requires training for 2 or 22 people we can help”, comments Louise. “For those working in the caring industry, our ‘Skills for Care’ induction week is particularly useful helping arm those in the industry with basic skills.”
“Our aim is to be as green as possible and paper free so with this in mind most course literature will be placed on a USB stick or sent straight to your office computer via e-mail”, adds Louise.
Louise turned to business support organisation NWES for help start up the company: “It was great to be able to turn to NWES for business advice. It’s been very helpful and we continue to work with our business adviser Sergio. Our thanks also go to Proactive Learning who have been helping us with equipment.”
Business Adviser, Sergio Aschettino, comments “Working with this new business start has been a pleasure; being able to work with the family, supporting them in their aim and aspirations for the family business.”

This project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), a €308 billion programme of European Structural Funds across European Union member states for the period 2007-13. The East of England's allocation is (currently) approximately £95 million, which is being invested in the region under the EU Competitiveness and Employment objective. Under this objective, the ERDF programme aims to strengthen the competitiveness and attractiveness of all regions in the UK, promote employment and economic growth through promotion of the knowledge economy and investment in human resources. The ERDF programme for the East of England will support low carbon economic growth until 2015.
