Education Inspires Change
LD Training Services Limited (LDT) is one of the UK’s most dynamic and expanding professional training organisations. It has been established as an independent training provider since 2009. LDT are a successful PRIME who specialise in helping both individuals and organisations fulfil their true potential through the provision of accredited bespoke education and training programmes.
Having become a well-established organisation in the Government funded training sector, LD Training diversified into tertiary education in 2019 in order to strengthen its portfolio and to provide ongoing career progression opportunities for our alumni. In this regard, LDT secured a collaborative partnership agreement with Leeds Trinity University to offer its Foundation Year Zero course from September 2019 at our new campuses in Dudley and Nottingham. In September 2020, we launched the Leeds Trinity University Foundation Year course at our new London campus in Stanmore, and Year 1 of the University’s BA (Hons) Business & Management degree at our Nottingham and Dudley campuses.
LD Training Services Limited (LDT) firmly believe in lifelong learning, and that everyone should have the opportunity to further their education. As such we believe offering the University of Suffolk’s degree programmes to our students will be a positive and complementary addition to our current HE portfolio and in turn continue to provide the opportunity to our students of progression and achievement to fulfil their ambitions and career goals. Our vision will always be driven by our commitment to delivering recognised qualifications, at a high standard within a flexible and student focused environment. LD Training is run by an experienced team of high calibre training professionals who have vision, energy, innovative strategic drive and crucially relevant resources behind them. They have an established reputation as one of the most reliable and successful PRIMES in the UK Government training sector, with a coherent and integrated business model which has been operational for over 11 years and is highly effective. Further, they have their own established quality assurance procedures over and above those of their professional awarding bodies, University collaborative partners and external Government funding requirements.
LD Training has built up strong relationships with communities, charities, employers and students over the last 11 years. As such, we have a vast array of experience and knowledge about the education market, the demand for flexible higher educational delivery and a student focused and community led delivery methodology. We have widened participation successfully within education across all levels from entry through to level 5 through our proud history of working alongside local communities to provide the opportunity for growth and development for under privileged and hard to reach groups. This engagement with local communities stems from our embedded organisational culture and community work, alongside the deep-rooted community links held by our assessors and tutors that we have worked with over the past 11 years. These strong community links have enabled us to progressively move towards meeting our overall organisational vision and mission statement.
LD Training has a discernible and distinctive educational philosophy which is atypical of many private sector educational providers. Student/Learner satisfaction and success, widening access to education and training and investment in our staff are three distinctive features of the LDT philosophy. While financial sustainability and viability are essential, making a substantial profit is not the primary driving force of the organisation. The organisation has in recent times undergone a significant rebranding and repositioning to better ensure that it is private sector education with a difference – namely, with a heart. This has influenced, inter alia, the development of the Mission and Core Values of the organisation.
LD Training is committed to providing a unique student-focused learning experience that is centred around, providing our students with the best possible student experience. At LDT, our student-focused and flexible approach to learning is at the heart of all that we do, ensuring every student is given the best possible support and environment in which to flourish. Ensuring our students are given both the academic and pastoral support needed to achieve their academic goals successfully is at the forefront of everything that we do. Providing a student experience that gives our students more than just an academic qualification is something that we pride ourselves on, as such we have implemented various strategies to add value to our student experience and provide them with the necessary support and engagement to ensure they progress both academically and personally whilst studying with us.
To continue to be a leading provider of both FE and HE educational pathways for all, irrespective of background, academic level or ambition, utilising world-class and innovative delivery methodologies.
To change the lives of our learners/students through education, improve the productivity and efficiency of organisations they are associated with and help to shape and develop exciting communities of the future.
