Education and training is important to us at Lincolnshire Co-op, a key part of our purpose is about developing people and building strength for the long term.

The Prince's Trust

Each year we deliver a four-week Get into Retail programme delivered in partnership with The Prince’s Trust.

Participants begin with a training week which equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills required for their three week placement in a Lincolnshire Co-op outlet, including two Level 1 qualifications in Food Hygiene and Responsible Alcohol Retailing.

Since 2015 over 150 people aged 16 to 30 have participated in eight rounds of the programme, with 48% of those finding jobs with Lincolnshire Co-op.

The Lincoln Science and Innovation Park and School of Pharmacy

We joined forces with the University of Lincoln to build a world-class science and innovation park off Tritton Road in Lincoln.

The first phase of its development saw the opening of the Joseph Banks Laboratories which houses the University of Lincoln’s School of Pharmacy.

Working closely with the School of Pharmacy is a mutually beneficial arrangement; at Lincolnshire Co-op, we provide help, advice and work experience to students and career opportunities to graduates in our pharmacies. In return, the School of Pharmacy will offer continuous professional development for our pharmacists.
