New funding round for WELL Training

Written by on 12/12/2021

A Black Country digital training provider has secured £625,000 in a new funding round.

WELL Training will use the new capital to drive its growth strategy in two main areas – increasing apprenticeship capacity and expanding the use of its online digital training platform.

The Wolverhampton-based company was founded in 2010 by Jacqueline Wyke and her daughters Lindsey Flynn and Lianne Wyke-Russell and runs training programmes for brands such as Caffè Nero, the NHS and Edgewell Personal Care.

Lindsey Flynn said: “We will build on our heritage in providing high-quality skills development training by growing our apprenticeship training capacity and expanding our successful digital offerings.

“WELL will continue to transform learners’ careers, making a positive difference to companies across the UK and throughout the world.”

The Birmingham BusinessLive Awards in association with Birmingham Post 2022 are open for entries.

The annual ceremony will celebrate the city’s finest businesses, individuals and organisations and crown our overall Company of the Year – enter now here.

The deadline for submissions is Monday January 17 and the ceremony will be held at the ICC in Birmingham on Friday March 18.

The fresh round of funding has been provided by the Midlands Engine Investment Fund’s West Midlands Equity Fund which is managed by Birmingham-based Midven.

Midven director Roger Wood added: “Training, and particularly apprenticeships, are set to play a crucial role as the UK workforce and economy rebound and evolve following covid.

“As a long-established and highly reputed provider in this space, WELL Training is well placed to deliver significant growth in this environment.

“We look forward to working with its experienced team to help deliver a more highly skilled workforce within the Midlands and beyond.”
