Smart Apprentices has been acquired by Advanced

The fast-growing technology company Smart Apprentices Ltd. has been sold to Advanced.

Founded in 2010, Smart Apprentices has developed a leading position in the recruitment, management and assessment of workplace apprentices across both workplace and classroom learning.

Advanced is a leading provider of healthcare, enterprise and other business solutions and services to the public and private sectors in the UK. The acquisition will strengthen Advanced’s position in the further education, skills and learning sector, which will prove to be critical as the UK undergoes one of the largest reforms of skills and education as it emerges from the pandemic.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised Smart Apprentices on its sale to Advanced.
