An independently managed investment subsidiary of Investindustrial VII L.P. has acquired a majority shareholding in Campus Training, which provides vocational education and professional training in Spain.

Campus Training’s founder Carlos Díaz will continue to lead it and has retained close to 40% of the company jointly with the management team.

Campus Training is headquartered in La Coruña in Galicia and has almost 400 employees. It offers more than 200 courses to more than 14,000 students annually through its online learning platform and hybrid training centres across 30 locations and last reported €30 million in revenue.

The company provides professional training courses, civil servant admissions tests preparation and vocational education certifications for sectors such as healthcare and public administration. It offers additional branded courses, including new technologies via its Tokio brand, audiovisuals through its 35mm brand, animal care through its Nubika brand, and health and sports via its CEMP brand.

Campus Training has also listed more than 23,000 job offers so far this year.

Díaz said: “We are delighted to have found such a reliable and responsible long-term partner with our same philosophy and values in leading change, supporting employment growth and developing the Spanish educational system. Investindustrial is a long-term partner that will help us continue our growth through its international reach and with its know-how in acquisitions.

“At times like these, education is pivotal to retrain the workforce for the transition to the digital economy and has become even more pressing with the acceleration of this trend due to Covid-19. We are looking forward to taking advantage of Investindustrial’s expertise and platform both at national and international level.”

Andrea C Bonomi, chairman of the industrial advisory board at Investindustrial, added: “Investindustrial has been a steady and responsible investor in Spain over many economic cycles. Many Spanish companies and Campus Training in particular, are ideally positioned to harness the opportunities from new digital technologies ensuring a thriving future. We are excited about the significant growth potential available to Campus Training.”
