learndirect is the UK’s largest provider of employment related services.

The business has helped millions of people gain the skills needed for work. This includes qualifications in everyday skills like maths, English and IT, vocational qualifications and Apprenticeships in lots of industries and short online courses in subjects from software packages to languages.

The investment from LDC gave learndirect the flexibility to compete more effectively in the wider marketplace by accessing a far greater pool of potential learners and businesses and expanding across a much broader range of services.

LDC exited its investment in the learndirect group in June 2018 through a sale to Dimensions Training Solutions.
