BPP acquires Buttercups Training

18 Apr 2024

BPP, a leading provider of professional and vocational higher education, has completed the acquisition of Buttercups Training, a market-leading training provider delivering high-quality programmes to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and support staff working in hospitals, community pharmacy and primary care.

Buttercups’ deep understanding of the sector, combined with their experienced team of professionals, has resulted in them becoming the number one training provider for the UK’s largest pharmacy groups, creating a significant positive impact on the UK healthcare workforce. This acquisition adds an exciting new discipline to BPP’s portfolio by creating a presence in the pharmacy sector.

Graham Gaddes, CEO of BPP, added: “The acquisition of Buttercups Training introduces a new discipline into our healthcare portfolio. There is an unprecedented demand for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians in the UK, and this shortfall is set to continue to increase. The acquisition of Buttercups will allow us to support their growth plans and through exceptional training programmes, focus on bridging the skills gap in the healthcare sector. This in turn builds on our vision of ‘Building Careers Through Education’. The highly experienced team at Buttercups Training are a great cultural fit for BPP, and we look forward to welcoming them into the BPP Education Group.”
