Babcock has been our nominated learning provider for the last 14 years.

In that time they have consistently helped increase the number of learners within our organisation each year. With their support, the pass rate of our learners is consistently higher than that of the national average.

The account manager and personnel we deal with from Babcock are always responsive and innovative to the challenges we set them. They understand and align their support to our company culture, which enables them to provide great support in developing marketing materials that feel like our own company literature. In addition to this their recruitment service has proved successful in finding us talented apprentices that fit the culture we recruit for. Their synergy goes to the extent of supporting our ‘Apprentice of the year’ category at our annual awards which they help judge.

The fact that they get our culture is important to us as it means the learning experience our colleagues get, feels like a natural extension to our company. Most recently they have been of great support in helping us understand and implement the transition to the apprenticeship levy. The partnership we have goes from strength to strength and I am happy to recommend Babcock as a dedicated learning provider.
