Learndirect has acquired Animal Courses Direct (ACD) and i-to-i (TATG Ltd), two specialist training providers operating in the Animal Welfare and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) sectors respectively

The acquisitions extend Learndirect’s existing portfolio in these sectors and provides a strong base for the group to continue to grow online education in these specialisms. Learndirect was the first platform investment from Queen’s Park Equity (QPE) Fund I.
