Founded in South Wales 25 years ago, the business provides a range of training courses (predominantly first aid related) for outdoor professionals. Clients include local authorities, national and local organisations working in an outdoor environment, educational establishments, D of E participants and leaders etc. There are significant levels of repeat business (c 70%) with some clients using the company for more than a decade.
The core training program provided is the Level 3 Outdoor First Aid Course, with accreditation via a recognised body. Other courses include:
• Basic & advanced first aid
• Lowland / moorland qualifications
• Navigation courses
• Overseas expeditions
• Schools / workplace / yoga first aid
• Forestry first aid
• Manual handling in an outdoor environment
• Teacher training
• D of E training and assessment
Courses are either run at the customer’s premises or at a hired local venue. The required kit for display and demonstration is easily transportable.
The business is owned and run by the vendor, with a small amount of administrative support. Turnover has typically been around £30,000, but other business interests have squeezed the amount of time the vendor has been able to devote to this business more recently and turnover for the last couple of years has deliberately been reduced to around £15,000 per year. This presents significant opportunity to a buyer able to devote a greater amount of time to the business, and invest in a fuller marketing strategy.
The guide price for assets and goodwill is £26,000 to include all the necessary equipment required to maintain the services provided, in addition to the company name, website, and customer and supplier databases, In addition the vendor will provide an appropriate level of handover.
The opportunity would suit a complementary training business or for an individual, perhaps alongside existing seasonal work.
