AquaTerra Training and Polaris Learning are delighted to announce that after many years of working closely together, they are now strengthening this relationship with AquaTerra Training investing in Polaris Learning with a 50% share. Both companies have been looking for an opportunity to grow their businesses, and build on the offer of a complete training and competency service for their clients. This new arrangement is key to achieving this.
AquaTerra Training, a leading provider of practical health & safety training took the decision to invest in Polaris Learning as part of AquaTerra Training’s ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional training services to its clients. By joining forces with Polaris Learning, AquaTerra Training aims to broaden its range of training offerings and provide an even higher level of expertise and resources to its customers.
Polaris Learning & AquaTerra Training have been working together for around 10 years informally, and were looking for a way to strengthen this relationship enabling them to maximise their resources and achieve their full potential to address client needs in the marketplace.
Polaris Learning brings a wealth of experience and a stellar reputation in delivering competency-based training programs, Modern Apprenticeships, people development solutions, and online competency and training technologies across various sectors including energy, food and drink, manufacturing and engineering, third sector and public sector.
Their tailored learning and competence solutions have consistently proven effective in developing workforce competency, improving performance, and ensuring compliance with industry regulations as well as positioning them as a leading provider of Modern Apprenticeships to the food and drink industry. By incorporating Polaris Learning’s expertise into its portfolio, AquaTerra Training is poised to deliver an even more comprehensive and impactful training experience for its clients.
This strategic partnership aligns closely with AquaTerra Training’s mission of empowering individuals and organisations through exceptional training solutions. By expanding their joint resources and capabilities, Polaris Learning and AquaTerra Training who count The Macallan Distillery, NHS Grampian, Volvo Construction Equipment, and SSE in their client portfolios can continue to address the evolving needs of their clients in an ever-changing and demanding business environment.
“This strategic investment marks a significant milestone for AquaTerra Training,” said Charlie Cameron, Managing Director of AquaTerra Training. “We are excited to join forces with Polaris Learning and combine our strengths to create a powerhouse in the training and competency industry. Together, we will be able to offer a wider range of training and competency programs, supporting online technologies, deliver enhanced learning experiences, and drive real-world results for our clients.”
Reflecting on the move Keith Adam, Managing Director of Polaris Learning Ltd explained: “We have been working alongside Aquaterra Training for a number of years, running several courses and projects in collaboration. This strategic partnership feels like the natural next step for us, allowing us to present ourselves more cohesively into the marketplace and strengthen our operational resources. We have felt the need to step up our capacity for some time to maximise opportunities and increase support to our great client base, and this allows us to achieve this quickly.”
Under the new partnership, AquaTerra Training and Polaris Learning will continue to operate under their existing name and brands but pool their respective expertise and resources to develop innovative training solutions that cater to the specific needs of their clients. By combining their collective knowledge and experience, the two organisations are confident in their ability to deliver industry-leading training programs that enable individuals and businesses to thrive.
