Palatine Private Equity has invested in Trade Skills 4U, a specialist in electrical training courses in the UK.
This marks the first deal from Palatine’s Impact Fund, an investment vehicle targeting profitable growth companies that can deliver a private equity return, and a positive social or environmental impact.
Established in 2005, the Gatwick and Warrington-based business provides a range of electrical courses for individuals who have little or no electrical knowledge who want to become electricians, whilst also providing further training to those already in the profession or associated trades.
Trade Skills 4U focuses on the adult training market, and attracts people who are looking to upskill or retrain in an environment that is suited to their needs. This includes people who have left the military, and opens up career opportunities that may not have been accessible to individuals prior to completion of the Trade Skills 4U courses.
