Our approach to skills training

Our approach is simple: define and deliver outstanding skills training that unlocks people’s potential and harnesses competitive advantage for the UK’s businesses.

Every part of what we do is driven by the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to learn. It’s fundamental to developing apprenticeship programmes that work harder for everyone, for good. And it’s why over 20,000 people a year choose to learn life-changing skills with Lifetime.

Partnership leads the way

Working end to end means starting at the beginning and understanding everything: your business, its culture, and where you want to go. It’s how we’re able to take everything off your hands (including the bits you may not have thought of), to develop unique training programmes tailored specifically to achieving your vision.

Speed, scale and reach

We deliver high-quality apprenticeship programmes at speed and at scale, so your skills base grows stronger while your people build future-focussed career pathways. Our well-established infrastructure means you get expertise in every aspect of apprenticeship delivery, with the people power to deliver large-scale programmes across the UK.

Recruit and retain the best

Every year our dedicated recruitment team places nearly 5,000 apprentices across a wide range of sectors, roles and departments, all over the UK. By developing robust recruitment strategies that attract, pre-screen and shortlist the best candidates, your internal teams are less pressured, and your business saves time and money.

Next-level technology

Having the right technology takes our successful apprenticeships to yet another level. As Aptem partners, we can bring our award-winning curriculum and learning delivery to life, so we can even further enhance every learner’s engagement, experience – and future.

Driving social mobility

We believe everyone, from anywhere and everywhere, should have the opportunity to learn. Background should never close doors. It’s why we’re committed to opening them, by reaching potential candidates from the widest possible demographic. And it’s why we always celebrate their life-changing success stories as they learn, thrive and realise their full potential.

Experience and expertise

We’re proud to have built robust, long-standing partnerships with leading businesses across diverse industries and sectors, all across the UK. They choose us for our depth and breadth of experience, and because what we do in training helps them become even better at what they do in business. By shaping the future of learning, we can shape the future of business, together.
