Staffline, the Nottingham-based recruitment and training group, has revealed that its PeoplePlus division has agreed terms to sell its Apprenticeships business to Babington Business College Ltd (Babington), a professional training course, apprenticeships and traineeships provider.
It is anticipated that the transaction will complete in early December. Under the agreement, Babington will acquire contracts and assets from PeoplePlus associated with the delivery of Apprenticeships across England and Scotland.
Albert Ellis, Chief Executive Officer of Staffline, said: “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Babington, which will ensure our Apprenticeship clients and learners continue with another high-quality training provider.
“PeoplePlus has unique capabilities, experience and scale in the employability and adult skills sectors and this transaction will enable the division to fully focus on the UK wide unemployment challenge that now exists.”
