Company history

Founded in 1998, Skillsoft Corporation is the product of a 2002 merger with SmartForce, a leader in IT courseware that was founded in 1989.

Since 2002, Skillsoft has continued to be a leader in the field of learning, growing the business organically and through acquisition. We completed the acquisition of NETg from The Thomson Corporation in 2007, in 2011 we acquired Element K from NIIT and in 2012 we acquired ThirdForce Group PLC (Mindleaders).

In April, 2014, Skillsoft was acquired by Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP, one of the oldest Private Equity funds in Europe that has been investing in management buyouts since the 1980s. Since then, Charterhouse has completed 137 transactions with an aggregate value of EUR 50 billion. Today Charterhouse is investing from its ninth fund of EUR 4 billion and focuses on backing managers of outstanding businesses to achieve their growth plans.

Skillsoft has grown from its early days as a provider of IT and business skills elearning, and now offers learning solutions that include digitized books, videos, simulations, a learning management system, content development tools, and a range of services to ensure that our customers can effectively leverage our solutions to achieve their business goals.
