Leadership announcement

DERBY, UK – 8th February 2024 – The Board of Babington, a leading provider of apprenticeships, professional training courses, and learning solutions in the UK, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jen Bramley as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.

Jen, who has held the post of Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Babington for the past four years, will take over the role from Mark Basham, who has resigned from the Company for personal reasons.

Jen has more than 15 years’ experience working in the education and training sector, with previous roles spanning leadership of operations, sales, recruitment, and customer experience. She joined Babington in 2018 as Executive Director of Customer Engagement and was promoted to COO in 2020.

As COO, Jen has been responsible for successfully building initiatives to drive service delivery, quality, compliance, customer support and safeguarding across all five of Babington’s core specialisms – ensuring the very highest standards of teaching and learning for up to 10,000 learners across 40 standards at the peak of the organisation’s expansion. Besides playing a critical role in shaping the strategic direction of the business, Jen recently led the Company’s engagement with Ofsted during its December inspection, resulting in a Grade 2 (‘Good’) outcome for the provider across all five core inspection categories.

The positive Ofsted report comes after a period of strategic realignment as Babington sought to strengthen its core provision and bring greater focus to the delivery of apprenticeships and commercial learning solutions across five key specialisms and sectors, aligned to market demand.


We are grateful to Mark for guiding our strategic initiatives and wish him and his family well. Jen has the confidence of her team and our clients to build on Babington’s strengths and I look forward to supporting her and the wider executive team as they work to achieve the Company’s future goals.

Chief Executive Officer


As a new leadership team we have made great progress implementing the agreed strategic realignment over the past six months, culminating in the terrific report from Ofsted. As such, given my personal circumstances, it is a good time for me to step back and leave the Company in Jen’s very capable hands. I am looking forward to committing more time to other portfolio interests. I wish the whole Babington team every success for the future.
