Continuing Professional Education (CPE) platform Reducate becomes bigger after acquiring E-learning Made Easy
UTRECHT, December 1st, 2022 – Reducate has acquired online CPE platform E-learning Made Easy (EME), making it the largest provider of CPE in elderly and disability care. The online platform sees a growing need for further training in this sector, due to the increasing aging of Europe.
The acquisition of E-learning Made Easy is the first expansion since the merger of E-WISE and Blueprint Learning in June this year. Reducate is already the largest provider of CPE courses for highly educated professionals in elderly care. EME has a strong position in the continuing education of care providers of level 1 to 4. “Together, the combined company will soon offer a range for the entire scope of elderly care”, says Hans van Veggel, CEO of Reducate.
Efficient CPE courses are important because of the aging population
Developments in healthcare are moving very fast, which means further training is essential. Van Veggel: “Another factor is the aging population increase in Europe, while the pressure on professionals in this sector is already enormous. We therefore want to make the limited time for compulsory education courses as efficient as possible, without losing sight of its quality.”
“Since its inception, EME has helped more than 25,000 professionals maintain their certification and update their knowledge. By working with Reducate, we can guarantee the quality of care in this sector on a larger scale”, says Hedwig Schlötjes Belle, founder of E-learning Made Easy.
Expanding is one of the keys to success
The acquisition of EME by Reducate fits the strategy of the training platform to maintain and strengthen the leading market position in Europe. Broadening the range is one of the keys to success, according to Van Veggel. “This acquisition fits seamlessly in our mission to offer knowledge to a very broad spectrum via our platform. Together we can provide a complete and high-quality offering, both within and outside the existing target groups.”
Reducate EdTech Group was created in June after a merger of E-WISE and the Danish Blueprint Learning. By joining forces, Reducate is the largest platform on the European e-learning market. The aim is to strengthen this position as an EdTech platform in Europe, with a broad representation in various target groups, including the medical, financial, legal and educational sectors. Currently, over 100,000 students are continuing their education in the combined range of more than two thousand courses.
