About Us

About Us

‘Achievement is Never an Accident’

We aim to work collaboratively with; students, parents, carers, commissioning services and other professional organisations to assist our students in developing skills that enable and empower them to become independent, self-sufficient adults who will succeed in, and contribute responsibly to, their community.

Key Skills Training Ltd believes that; no matter what an individual’s level of ability, or their starting point in life, given the appropriate level of support and opportunity, they can achieve great things.

We do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to learning. We believe instead that the individual’s needs, should be central to their development.
Every student is encouraged to play and active role in the delivery of our courses. ‘It’s their learning journey’. We are there to support them along the way and to point them in the right direction. With a myriad of other learning and training providers out there, we like to think we do things differently.

Firstly; we acknowledge that we cannot hope to meet the varying needs of the individual with one overarching teaching model. As such, Key Skills Training Ltd aims to provide bespoke training, catering for individual needs.

We have 5 tenets of practice that underpins all our service delivery. These state that all individuals enrolled with us (and the staff employed to deliver learning) can expect:


A Acceptance


E Equality


I  Inclusion


O Opportunity


U Understanding
