We’ve carefully built an organisation that puts education at the heart of our offering and won’t compromise on ethics or the service we provide. LDC really understands the importance of those values to our model and the investment provides a platform to further expand our network to meet the ever-challenging needs of teachers and schools across the country.”

LDC’s partnership with the management team will also help the management team broaden its offering with a continued focus on excellent customer service. It will also support potential acquisition opportunities to build scale. The business completed its first complementary acquisition in 2021.
