Capita plc will own a 51% share of the new company. The joint-venture will bring together commercial expertise which will enable much needed investment in developing products and breaking into new international markets. The joint-venture is a key example of driving innovation in the public sector.

This deal highlights the Government's commitment to using innovative commercial models to drive growth and return for the UK economy and our expertise in understanding the needs of commercially innovative business models in the public sector."
The products include the PRINCE2R qualification which is a process-based method for effective project management and the ITILR qualification which provides practical frameworks for identifying, planning, delivering and supporting IT services in a business.
