Welcome to North Lancs Training Group (NLTG)

NLTG are one of the largest training providers in the country. We have been helping people discover their future since 1969. 

We deliver Apprenticeships from Level 2 upto Level 5 in a wide variety of occupations. We are based in Accrington, Lancashire but cover all over the North West and Yorkshire with our Apprenticeships. That's because we come to you! There is no day realease to college with our Apprenticeships (except Joinery) so it's full time in work and we come to visit you in your workplace every 4 - 6 weeks.

We also offer the Study Programme and Traineeships, the exciting pre-apprenticeship programmes tailored to suit the needs of young people aged 16-18 who are not yet ready, or able, to directly enter an Apprenticeship or employment.

About us

Spending time in a classroom, at college, after leaving school is not the first choice for many people. On leaving school, we understand that you may want to go out to work and earn a wage.

As an apprentice you will work in a full time permanent job, whilst gaining an Apprenticeship qualification or standard.

NLTG can help you to find work, achieve your goals and build a better future.

For more information on what each Apprenticeship involves, please click below on the occupation that you are interested in.

We do Apprenticeships in the following occuptional areas:



NLTG are proud to report at our latest Ofsted Inspection we were judged to be Good across all areas of our provision. NLTG will now strive towards achieving Outstanding at our next Ofsted Inspection.
