Lawyers from Sheffield are helping Cambridge-based leading national online education provider TLC Education Group achieve its ambitions for international expansion.

The Sheffield office of national firm, Irwin Mitchell, advised TLC when it secured a capital injection from specialist educational investors and consultants 1886 Investments and others.

Partner and corporate lawyer Matt Ainsworth, who is continuing to provide advice for the firm, said: “This is a significant development for TLC.

“The business is keen to capitalise on its recent success and this deal provides huge opportunities for the business to build in the future and realise its international potential.”

TLC’s chief executive and founder Simon Barnes added: “The funding from 1886 Investments will accelerate our plan to expand our tuition service across the globe.

“Its strong ties throughout the Commonwealth will help us introduce TLC LIVE to a wider international audience.”
