Capital Law LLP advises Cardiff and Vale College on its acquisition of ACT

CAVC

Capital Law is pleased to announce that Cardiff and Vale College has acquired one of Wales’ leading apprenticeship and skills training providers, ACT, in order to drive forward support for young people, communities and businesses across the South East Wales.

ACT will be joining Cardiff and Vale College group’s portfolio as a wholly owned subsidiary, making the college the largest in Wales. The two together delivered close to 2000 Foundation Apprenticeships in 2015. ACT will continue operations as normal and neither company will see change for staff, learners and employers.

Chris Nott of Capital Law spoke of the acquisition: “It is great to see two forward-thinking, high-performing and business-focused education and training providers like this coming together to work smarter and respond to the needs of businesses. This will be a major attraction to inward investors and a worry to the cities that Cardiff competes with”.

Mike James of Cardiff and Vale College said: “Capital Law is incredibly accommodating and facilitating. The lawyers we worked with used their expertise to really get in tune with what our business was trying to do, and gain a genuine understanding of how we could benefit the wider community.”

Mike added: “Capital Law don’t preach – they listen. They turned our thoughts into actions, and gave us the confidence to move the process forward. They made us feel supported and safe about being brave enough to make the changes we needed to make. Capital Law has not only created a business relationship – in our eyes, the firm is now a life-long friend of Cardiff and Vale College.”
