Will take on Pearson’s training business

Pearson will be transferring the majority of its adult training business to West Nottinghamshire College, following its decision to leave the business at the beginning of January. The training business will be renamed as Vision Workforce Skills.

Asha Khemka, Chief Executive of the college, says: “This cements the college’s position as one of the country’s leading providers of workforce development programmes and significantly enhances our national reach in terms of employer engagement. Above all, this is good news for Pearson in Practice learners, who will be supported to successfully complete their apprenticeship or training programme.”

Rod Bristow, President of Pearson UK, said: “Pearson is very pleased to reach an agreement for the transfer of most of Pearson in Practice to West Nottinghamshire College, which has established a strong record in training and apprenticeships. We believe this to be the best solution for the affected learners, staff, employers and other partners.”
