“The Capita Learning Services business has been developed to address the challenges and trends we’re seeing in the learning and development market. As a result we have created an integrated L&D proposition that provides a range of services — from digital learning solutions, traineeships and apprenticeships, to fully outsourced managed learning programmes and executive leadership training.
We are capability-led, and have developed and broadened our services to guarantee our clients have everything they need to drive measurable performance improvement. To date we’ve helped hundreds of businesses and tens of thousands of individuals train, improve and succeed. And we’d like to build on that success by growing our business, working with new clients and expanding into different industries and territories.”
Sunna van Loo, Managing Director, Capita Learning Services
