- LEO, LTG's learning solutions business, has won a formal tender process managed by Crown Commercial Service on behalf of Civil Service Learning ("CSL") as part of a strategic alliance with KPMG UK LLP.

The consortium has been awarded a three year contract (with the option for CSL to extend for a further one year) to provide learning and development services for the entire UK Civil Service.

The Company said this substantial contract is a transformational deal for LTG and is the most significant contract the Group has ever won.

The UK Civil Service comprises more than 400,000 people and CSL is dedicated to providing appropriate and timely learning and development to all UK civil servants, in order that they obtain the key skills required to deliver public services of the highest standard.

In collaboration with KPMG, LEO will lead the design and development of the new learning architecture, creating blended courses that incorporate a combination of digital, informal and classroom components. KPMG and other consortium members will be responsible for other aspects of the contract with CSL, including the delivery of face-to-face training.

Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of LTG said:

"We are delighted to be working with KPMG on this substantial contract for Civil Service Learning. This is transformational for LTG and confirms we are now able to deliver major scale strategic learning solutions to government and global corporate customers. I fully expect it will open the door to further opportunities of a similar nature.

"This win has both affirmed and endorsed the strategy of acquiring LINE and combining it with Epic to create the UK leader in e-learning. We set out to build a business of scale which in short order would have revenues of £50m per annum. This high quality revenue stream marks another milestone in achieving this target."
