"I expect to see maybe one or two acquisitions in the first year so I know there is some in the pipeline," he said. "I want to continue to grow new business where the City & Guilds have prospects around growth... while traditional businesses are doing well at holding their own market, public funding is declining and it's really gratifying to think you are standing on the shoulders of others," Crawford said.
Crawford sees the future of City & Guilds in looking to create a better engagement with its learners and the overall learning experience through the use of public cloud.
'No doubt I am absolutely sure an organisation of our size using key applications and getting them to work in the public/private cloud hybrid which sooner or later will mature."
