Clearwater International advises White Rose Beauty Colleges on its sale to Learning Curve Group

Clearwater International has advised Yorkshire-based White Rose Beauty Colleges (White Rose), one of the largest beauty therapy training providers in the UK, on its sale to Learning Curve Group (LCG), in a move which will complement LCG’s existing academy provision.

LCG, which already has hair and beauty academies across the North East of England and London, will see the addition of a further 3,500 learners each year in nine new locations and 170 employees as part of the transaction, confirming its position as one of the largest providers of high quality beauty training in the country.

White Rose was founded in 1996 and has helped thousands of learners gain the skills and experience they need for successful careers in the beauty industry. It delivers a wide range of Beauty Therapy, Holistic Therapy, Sports Massage and Make Up Artistry courses.

White Rose is a Centre of Excellence with ITEC, a Flagship Centre with VTCT and a Habia Centre of Expertise, as well as achieving a Grade 1 Outstanding result in its most recent Ofsted inspection.

The deal sees LCG further cement its position as one of the country’s largest, most diverse and fastest growing, quality training providers. LCG will now be delivering training from over 60 locations across England and Wales to add to its existing apprenticeship, community and Adult Education provision.

The Clearwater International team consisted of Partner Rob Burden, Director Karen Edwards and Associate Rory Crossen.
