Our History


With a rich history of service excellence, Babcock is a trusted name across the skills and learning market. Part of Babcock International Group, a FTSE 250 company established in 1891, Babcock Training Ltd has an extensive track record of designing unique employer led employee development solutions for a range of sectors, including retail, hospitality, adult and early years care, alongside a wider provision of business administration, customer service and management apprenticeships.

Delivering apprenticeships since 1993 we are now one of the largest work based providers in the UK offering apprenticeship training across all four nations. We operate through regional teams of apprenticeship trainers, internal quality assurers, skills trainers and managers, all of whom live and work in their regions.

Our size, experience and credibility as one of the UK’s leading apprenticeship providers means we are able to draw upon embedded capability and expertise to realise our customer’s strategic ambitions.



With a long term track record in delivering Ofsted Grade 2 provision and meeting the requirements of inspectorates/funding bodies of the devolved nations, we can ensure consistency in delivery for all learners, supported by robust systems for quality and monitoring.

Our apprenticeship programmes are underpinned by a range of national accreditations and kite marks, ensuring a vigorous approach to quality, standards and consistency.
