Welcome to Progressions UK


All young people must continue with their education until the end of the
academic year in which they turn 17.
This doesn’t mean you have to stay on at school or go to college, there are three routes available:

1) Full-time Education
2) Apprenticeships
3) Full-time work combined with Part-time Education or Training

At Progressions UK we offer a wide range of full-time education level one and level two Study Programmes in Customer Service, Nail & Beauty and Business Enterprise. Whether as a hobby, interest or part of your career path all our courses are designed to develop vocational skills and increase your understanding of what employers need, as well as further improve your Maths and English. All to prepare you to be successful in your chosen career, including progression opportunities via our Apprenticeship programme.

We offer Apprenticeship opportunities in Business Administration, Customer Services, Sales, Hospitality, Retail and Warehousing through the hundreds of employers we work with across West Yorkshire. All Apprentices through LifeSkills earn the Apprenticeship minimum wage. With the potential to progress onto an advanced Apprenticeship at the end of your first year you can continue to learn a living. It is estimated that those who complete an Apprenticeship can earn at the same level as graduates, so this option of learning is very popular with employers and employees alike.

So when considering your options for continuing your education, please do give us a call or come and see our excellent training centre in Leeds to see how we can help you to Learn a Living.
