LifeSkills was formed to help create a brighter future for all the people we work with. Our three core values that the business is built on are:

  • To promote and deliver a culture of care for everyone 
  • Support, listen and respect each other
  • Be open, honest and do what we say we will.

By employing passionate, experienced, qualified and caring team members who live our values, our education programmes enable learners to gain employment or move into further or higher education.

We are in the business of building an organisation, an institution, that we hope will be here 50 years from now, making a difference to the lives of many people along the way.

“When I was 16 years of age, the options were very limited, there were no vocational or employability courses available that I could follow. My dream was to set up a training company that catered for learners like me, who were not engaged by the school system and help young people create a brighter future for themselves”. Spencer Fearn, Co-owner.

Since 2002 when we first started in Bethnal Green, 20,000 learners have experienced the ‘LifeSkills way’. We have training centres in Basildon, Lowestoft, and Rotherham. And of course there is our Leeds Centre run by our sister company, Progressions UK. LifeSkills are an Ofsted graded ‘Good’ learning Provider.

LifeSkills is about equipping learners with the skills they need in the modern world to get the jobs they want. Our employment and learning Programmes have been highly praised throughout the industry. Whilst this is very nice, the important part for us is how our learners view LifeSkills, below are some of the results from the last year.
