North East training startup set for growth with global Sage partnership

A North East startup specialising in corporate training has secured a partnership with financial software giant Sage.

SUB 10 has won a contract to design and deliver a training programme to be rolled out to the firm’s 13,000 staff around the world.

Based at PROTO at the Baltic Business Quarter in Gateshead, SUB 10 was founded by training and e-learning specialists Peter Stephenson and Angela Ross, and specialises in offering digital training solutions.

The firm, which has been operating for less than 12 months, now has plans to develop its intelliLEARN platform as well as expand its team following the contract win.

SUB 10 co-founder Angela Ross commented: “Sage is a market leader and significant business in the North East and we are beyond delighted to have been chosen to partner with them in designing, creating and delivering their Code of Conduct, being chosen ahead of some of the biggest players in the field of e-learning.

“While we may have only been in business for a few months, we are grateful to Sage for realising the value of our proposition and the potential our new approach to corporate training can have for a multi-national organisation like theirs.”

Charley-Jo Devlin, business integrity manager at Sage, added: “Like many of our customers and business partners, Sage began as a start-up business so when SUB10 came to us with a proposition that compared favourably to other offerings on the market, and they were also a local learning provider, it seemed like a perfect match.

“We’re excited to partner with SUB10 and to transform the learning experience for our colleagues.”

Lucy Carlin, senior associate at Sintons, has worked with SUB 10 since its pre-launch. She explained: “After a very short time in business, this is a fantastic achievement for SUB 10 to win such a significant and sizeable contract, particularly from a company of the stature of Sage.

“Peter and Angela have shown such ambition and determination to redefine the traditional approach to corporate training, and it is great to see them being rewarded with appointment to such an exciting project.”
