Boots identified Babington as their delivery partner for our new Business Apprenticeship Programme following an extensive tender process. We have now been working together for almost 4 years and have found Babington to be true professionals that are very accommodating and supportive. We have a very ambitious programme within a fast paced retail business, during this time Babington have never failed to support, accommodate and advise us. Our apprentices are thriving at college and are really enjoying their academic studies and this is credit to the organisation, design and delivery of the programme delivered by Babington Group
