Lifetime Training

Established in 1995, Lifetime Training's founding principle was to support individuals and businesses to perform better through the delivery of outstanding training programmes.

Today this principle remains core to our business and has enabled Lifetime Training to become one of the UK's market leading training providers, offering apprenticeship programmes, recruitment services and training courses. We have developed the skills and careers of thousands of individuals and have improved the performance and staff retention of some of the biggest, and smallest, employers in the UK across a wide range of business sectors:

  • Fitness & Active Leisure
  • Beauty
  • Hospitality
  • Health & Social Care
  • Retail
  • Business & Admin
  • Early Years

Lifetime Training offers a wide choice of training solutions to customers ranging from the assessment of training and development needs for large organisations, to course advice and industry recognised qualifications for individual learners.

We design award-winning programmes that are role-relevant and industry endorsed. We provide the highest quality and most engaging Tutors, Regional Trainers and Assessors and employ the most effective, appropriate and innovative delivery and assessment methods.

Quality is central to our business ethos and we work hard to achieve great results for our customers, whether this is through our classroom or workplace delivery, central administration and support services or through the development of technology to constantly improve the service we deliver. These efforts are acknowledged through our Ofsted Grade II and Training Quality Standard awards. In addition, our above national-average learner completion and success rates have led to the development of long-standing relationships with employers and learners alike.

We also deliver bespoke programmes to meet the specific needs of our corporate clients and have our own awarding organisation, Innovate Awarding, to meet the growing need for 'fit for purpose' qualifications and work-ready recruits.

In short, we look to support our learners throughout their careers and provide them with the right opportunities for a lifetime of achievement.

We've a great track record and have received many awards and marks of quality to prove it.

The Lifetime Training story

Lifetime was created as a training and consultancy business in 1995 by a truly inspirational Founder, Heather Frankham. Over the early years Lifetime developed strong partnerships with both large and small employers to initially establish itself as the leading apprenticeship and training provider in the Active Leisure sector.

In 2011 Lifetime benefited from investment through Sovereign Capital and Alex Khan was appointed as CEO to lead the next phase of Lifetime Training’s diversification and growth journey.

Since then, Lifetime has won a number of major clients to secure a dominant position in the provision of apprenticeships and self-funded training, developing the careers of thousands of individuals across a broad range of sectors including Active Leisure, Beauty, Hospitality, Retail, Business Administration, Health and Social Care, and Early Years.

In 2016, Silverfleet Capital became Lifetime’s new investment partner to continue building on its reputation for quality and professionalism as a market leader in apprenticeships and commercial training.
