Capita acquires managed learning services provider, KnowledgePool
Capita plc has announced that it has acquired KnowledgePool Group Ltd, a managed learning services provider, for an undisclosed sum.
The announcement comes a week after Capita purchased another L&D firm, Blue Sky Performance.
KnowledgePool provides learning managed services, including its three core service components of supplier management, training administration and learning consultancy. Its clients, which include Lloyds Banking Group, Aviva, Virgin Media and Ford, benefit from KnowledgePool's ability to manage all learning activity and operations through a single channel that maximises return on training investment.
Chris Sharp, managing director for Capita's learning and development business, said: "KnowledgePool provides a world-class service that aligns learning with business objectives to improve performance and deliver results. Customers also benefit from access to over 2,500 international suppliers, bespoke e-learning and its ability to deliver efficiencies and evaluate return on investment.
"This acquisition further enhances Capita's capability to support organisations to meet regulatory training requirements and develop the knowledge and skills of their workforce."
Al Bird, managing director for KnowledgePool, said: "Clients will continue to benefit from our passion for delivering efficient learning management while also benefiting from an increased depth of capabilities.
"Our TrainerAdvisor knowledgebase will ensure we continue to objectively match each client's learning requirements to the most appropriate provider and delivery medium for optimal outcomes. We look forward to working together to deliver further value for existing and prospective clients and to lead the next stages of KnowledgePool's innovation and growth."
