Brenda McLeish, CEO at Learning Curve Group, commented: “We’re excited to join forces with Agilitas as we embark upon the next stage of our growth plans.
“MML has been a fantastic partner who has supported us over the last 5 years, seeing us grow significantly and move into our amazing new HQ.

Liam Goddard of Agilitas Private Equity, added “It has been a pleasure working with such a talented management team to develop a transformation plan to bring the exceptional education they offer to a much wider audience.
