Recent economic turbulence has acted as a long-term accelerator for growth across the sector. Upskilling and reskilling is now at the top of many government and corporate agendas.

The UK's productivity and skills gap is fuelling investment into corporate and vocational training.

The market is expanding quickly, with increased access to the Apprenticeship Levy and other funding pots, and advances in technology: innovative eLearning, AI, micro learning, and gamification. The quality of your content and delivery methods should support a robust market position, higher barriers to entry, and strong revenue and earnings visibility.
