Yorkshire e-learning company targets expansion

West Yorkshire-based Titus Learning, an e-learning systems provider with clients in 23 countries, is planning further expansion with the help of a six-figure funding package.

The company, whose clients include restaurant chain Wasabi, the Royal college of Surgeons and a number of international schools in Asia, is now planning to create ten jobs at its base in Saltaire near Bradford, increasing the size of its team by 50 per cent in the next two years.

Established in 2013 by industry professionals Sebastian Francis and Michael Bennett, the company designs tailored online learning platforms, giving organisations the ability to create training content, assess users and track progress.

Titus Learning secured the funding from NPIF – Mercia Debt Finance, a part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund which is managed by Mercia.

The funding will enable the business to employ additional developers, grow its sales and marketing team, achieve ISO 9001 quality certification and target further international growth.
Sebastian Francis, co-founder, said: "We've been fortunate to experience great organic growth in the UK and overseas, however this investment will allow us to accelerate that. It will help us to expand sales, further develop our services for the corporate market to ensure we are providing the best possible online learning solutions, and recruit the best staff."
