Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of LTG, said: “We have established a strong platform on which we can build and the Group is delivering to plan. I believe that LTG is very well placed to achieve a prominent position in a highly fragmented, growing market, currently estimated to be worth £140 billion. We see the ability to measure the impact of learning as the next major disruption to the e-learning industry.  LTG’s acquisition of Rustici and investment in Watershed in January 2016 places us at the vanguard of this crucial and exciting change.
