Ensuring continuity and learner support
LONDON, UK – 7th September 2023 – Babington, one of the UK’s foremost funded learning providers, today announced that it has signed an agreement with specialist professional services and technology business, Davies, to ensure support for apprentices across financial services and insurance standards.
Last month, Babington announced a strategic realignment programme to bring increased focus, innovation, and operational best practice to a streamlined set of core programmes across Accountancy, HR, Leadership, Data, and BACS (Business Administration and Customer Service). This programme will see the organisation simplify, strengthen, and refocus its operation to deliver market-leading learning experiences to support critical skills development aligned to market demand.
Despite the move to exit certain apprenticeship standards in financial services (insurance), property, and retail, Babington has been clear about its intention to safeguard and ensure continuity for all current and committed learners across affected programmes.
Today, and to this end, Babington announces an agreement with Davies that will see all current customers and learners in affected financial services and insurance standards offered the option to transfer and complete their learning with Davies. In addition, a number of Babington colleagues will join Davies to support the transition. Davies is one of the largest providers of apprenticeships for the insurance and financial services industries in the UK, and the learners from Babington will join over 1,500 learners currently completing similar apprenticeships with the provider.
