About LIFESKILLS SOLUTIONS LTD

LifeSkills Solutions are a training provider for vocational study programmes and apprenticeship programmes.

Back in 2002, current Managing Director Spencer Fearn - alongside Andrew Wright and Martin Kolton - decided to tap into young talent by launching an innovative music and graphics programme in Bethnal Green and created a specialist arm of the Central Training Group.

Since then, they’ve expanded across the UK and now have training centres in Basildon, Lowestoft and Rotherham – plus a Leeds centre run by sister company Progressions UK. Ofsted ranks them ‘outstanding’ for care, support, advice and guidance for learners.

LifeSkills Solutions shows learners the way by giving them the tools they need to get the jobs they want. Among young people on the company’s Study Programme courses, 79% go into a job, apprenticeship or college.

LifeSkills Solutions hold the Investors in People Gold Award and they’re Matrix-accredited, meaning the advice and guidance they give learners and employers has been commended.
