Education Inspires Change
LD Training was established as an Independent Training Provider within the further education sector in 2009, offering bespoke vocational learning to adult learners helping both individuals and organisations fulfil their potential through nationally accredited training programmes/qualifications, with our Head Office based in Edgware and now Stanmore. LD Training provides access education qualification opportunities within a flexible delivery model that enables students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their professional goals, improve the productivity of their organisations and provide leadership and service to their communities, as stated within the mission of the organisation. Over the past 12 years, LD Training has successfully delivered over 12000 qualifications, across various sectors including; business; management; health and social care; early years; education; hospitality; retail; construction and functional skills, from Entry level through to Level 5 and specialises in providing education to hard to reach communities.
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 a BA (Hons) Business and Management with a Foundation Year in Business from September 2019 at our campuses in London (Stanmore), Dudley and Nottingham. Following the successful delivery of our Leeds Trinity Partnership, we were successful in our approach to the University of Suffolk for a second collaborative partnership in order to provide our students with a greater choice of education pathway utilising a Foundation Year.
LD Training (LDT) firmly believe in lifelong learning, and that everyone should have the opportunity to further their education, chase their dreams and be given a supportive and accommodating environment in which to flourish. As such we believe offering the opportunity to access higher education via a student focused and flexible delivery method to our students and the wider community provides the opportunity of continued education to all, no matter of their background. Our vision will always be driven by our commitment to quality and dedication to provide our students with a rounded student experience, gaining an academic qualification, along with exceptional employability skills and continued self-development. 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.

Over the last 12 years we have built very strong relationships with communities, charities, employers and students, as such, we have a vast array of experience and knowledge about the educational sector, 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 as evidenced by our proud history of working alongside local communities to provide the opportunity for growth and development for under privileged and hard to reach groups.
