Welcome to Smart Training

There's never been a better time to gain a nationally recognised qualification whether you're interested in childcare, sales, management or the charity sector.

Smart Training is one of the UK's leading specialist training providers and offers a comprehensive range of part-time courses to help you get a foot on the career ladder. 

We have over 21 years experience of delivering top quality training plus an outstanding pass rate of 80% across all of our courses - more than 12% higher than the average for all national training providers.

What's more, we have funding from the Government so our training need not cost you anything.

About us

Smart Training is the UK's largest specialist NVQ training company, offering Apprenticeships in Childcare, Sales/Telesales, Marketing, Leadership and Management 

All our courses are part-time and students can choose to study with us in three different ways:

  • Option 1 – If you already have a full-time job, then you can join one of our study groups with tutorials held weekly/monthly at venues across London and the UK
  • Option 2 – If you are already employed for 30 hours or more per week outside the childcare sector, you can train with us once a week and we will help you to gain a placement for two days a week within a childcare setting
  • Option 3 – If you are currently unemployed and not in education, we may be able to help you to find a paid Apprenticeship position.

Facilities available

Saturday training; day release training; online training.


Additional support

Studying for a qualification with Smart Training is on a part-time basis with learners studying at a pace to suit them. It is also completely flexible as learners can start a course any time during the year and study in the way that suits them best. They can choose to either complete their qualification online, through traditional monthly study days or a combination of both. Day release training is also available.

The training courses are made up of tutorials, assignments and assessment in the workplace and are of a  consistently high standard with a team of highly experienced, enthusiastic tutors and assessors.

Training and assignments are based on individual needs and work can be completed online or on paper. Each learner also has the support of a Training Manager - their own dedicated contact who is always available to provide as much advice and support as they required. In addition, good attendance is rewarded with store vouchers.

Learner success

A pass rate of 80% - more than 12% higher than the national average for all other training providers - and a high proportion of learners finishing within the timeframe.
