As leaders in the training and development industry for over two decades, Bud co-founders Heather Frankham and David Foster have witnessed first-hand the challenges that can affect apprenticeship management – not to mention accommodating apprenticeship reforms such as the levy, increased employer involvement and the move to standards. They knew there had to be a better way. That’s when Bud was born.
Bud is a cloud-based management platform that supports every aspect of apprenticeship delivery, bringing together applicant management, programme creation, e-portfolio, workforce & learner reporting and funding management into a single powerful package.
@_Babington chooses @weareBud to maximise delivery of #training
Babington has awarded Bud Systems a multi-year contract as its training management platform to deliver apprenticeships, traineeships, and AEB funded learning. The contract comes as the result of a highly competitive tender process where Bud was considered alongside the other market leading platforms.
On-the-job training such as apprenticeships are an essential vehicle to transporting thousands of young people to meaningful careers. The Government’s commitment to the future of apprenticeships, signalled in its FE white paper earlier this year, reflects the value that apprenticeships bring to the workforce when delivered effectively.
The dynamics of the apprenticeship training sector are changing. Investors are paying attention to a set of factors that go beyond what mattered a few years ago. And several companies are seeing near unprecedented growth as a result.
