HOW WE CAN HELP
Supporting your organisation
As businesses compete for talent and face widening skills gaps, we believe it’s time to think differently.
We know that the gap between ‘traditional’ L&D and recruitment initiatives and funded learning means that many organisations simply aren’t leveraging the full suite of tools available to them to build the skills
they need most. We’re experts in apprenticeships and funded learning, but unlike other providers we understand the entire talent lifecycle, and how the right skills and capability can support agility, productivity, and growth.
Here's how we can help you:
Find, attract, and hire the best talent
We connect you with diverse entry level talent - recruiting apprentices or trainees on your behalf and working with you to build talent pipelines of suitably qualified and skilled employees to drive your performance agenda.
We can help you:
- Access new talent pools
- Social mobility and D&I
- Respond to skills requirements
- Hire for emerging roles
- Local and national recruitment
Develop and upskill your workforce
Upskill your existing colleagues with market-leading learning programmes backed by industry experts. Develop the right capability and competence across key business functions to drive the outcomes that matter most.
We can help you:
- Reskill and upskill your workforce
- Develop rounded and resilient individuals
- Create a lifelong learning culture
- Understand and utilise levy funding
- Make your L&D budgets work harder
Optimise your learning and skills initiatives
Let’s ensure your learning and development is really working for you. We can help you understand the levy and funding routes, or even outsource funded learning altogether, as well as supporting across a number of other areas.
We can help you with:
- Straight-talking strategy and advisory
- Outsourced learning administration
- Bespoke learning design
- Learning data and analytics
- Specific project support
FIND, DEVELOP, OPTIMISE
Let's get specific
We can help you find talent, develop skills, and optimise your learning initiatives.
What does that really mean? Well, apprenticeships, skills bootcamps, and other routes are all different forms of ‘funded learning’; that means that rather than paying for them in a traditional way from your L&D or HR budget, these routes are funded by UK Government. That might be via the apprenticeship levy – which you’ll pay every month if you’re a larger business (whether you use it or not) – or via funding ‘pots’ that are allocated to help develop skills and get people into work.
The diagram opposite is designed to show you exactly where and how these routes can help you find and upskill your workforce.Need a bigger version? Download the full resource here

Learning with a difference
Ultimately, everything we do is about unlocking potential and enhancing performance within your organisation. Your skills strategy has a direct impact on the ability to grow, move faster, do more for your customers, and stay ahead of the competition.
One size doesn’t fit all. That’s true of the skills needs of your business, and it’s true of your learners. That’s why our training programmes flex and work around the individual – using the latest technology and machine learning to deliver non-linear learning journeys, and giving access to coaches and mentors for one-to-one teaching.
We believe in lifelong learning. We also understand that being truly excellent in your field means having more than just professional competency; it’s about having the right mindset to meet change head on, and the ability to communicate and collaborate beyond your own function. All our programmes fit within wider learning pathways: that means you can always take the next step across both professional, technical, and wider personal development.
Our apprenticeships and learning programmes can always be tailored to fit your industry, and your organisation. We believe that learning is most effective when it’s contextualised, so there’s a strong link between skills and behaviours and your operating environment
If skills are the currency of the future, we believe we should also be mindful of our operating environment, our working practices, and the legacy we create for future generations. Sustainability is a core theme in everything we do; from how Babington itself operates, to the topics we embed within all our learning.
Besides Babington’s own deep expertise, we’re proud to boast some of the most knowledgeable partners out there. From designing learning content, to delivering interactive sessions and accrediting our programmes, you benefit from access to some of the best minds in the business. To name a few: Grant Thornton, FranklinCovey, BCS, CIPD, Obrizum, ACCA, CIMA, Henley Business School, and more.
