Our Story

The Leap team have extensive experience and business knowledge having worked, managed and owned a variety of organisations. The combination of business experience and hands-on practice provided the catalyst for the creation of Leap, a business dedicated to substantially improving the skills of the education and care workforce. Our ethos and true passion is embedded in supporting, developing and enhancing the skills, knowledge and behaviours of individuals who work alongside children, families and people.

We do this by:

  • Listening to our colleagues and peers in the early years sector including individuals, teams and owners of settings
  • Responding to the needs of the workforce
  • Creating and delivering bespoke training programmes, workshops and seminars
  • Providing highly trained professionals including tutors, assessors, trainers and consultants ensuring quality outcomes
  • Being flexible and adaptable
  • Focusing on quality through embedded research and best practice

We specialise in offering a range of accredited, nationally recognised qualifications at levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 for people who work in the childcare, early years and the education sector. Since our inception we’ve created and continue to build a distinguished and enviable reputation for the quality, professionalism, creativity, flexibility and cost effectiveness of all of our services

We are accredited and approved as a training centre by Edexcel and Cache and have partnered with a funding organisation who hold a direct contract from the Skills Funding Agency which gives us access to a range of funding to support individuals achieve their potential.

Our lecturers, tutors and early year’s specialists are all qualified professionals with the knowledge, skills and hands-on experience to support people in their chosen learning journey.

Our Team

At the core of our business are our people. Our team are relatively small but beautifully put together and extremely talented, enthusiastic and very committed to providing the very best training and development. We ensure that we recruit, train and retain the right people and we invest our time in ensuring their skills and knowledge are current and relevant to the sector.

All team members have relevant professional qualifications, a wealth of knowledge and experience at all levels within the sector, right from the ‘shop-floor’ through to management, ownership, external consultancy and academic lecturing. More importantly, the team are fully committed to living the values and beliefs of Leap.

All the team really enjoy working alongside individuals at every level helping to boost knowledge and understanding, enhance behaviours and ultimately build the confidence to deliver excellence and to help realise their own potential.

Our Thoughts & Dreams

The rapid growth within the care, education and early years sector and the constant need to change, adapt and be flexible has placed a huge demand on practitioners, managers and owners. It’s absolutely essential to support these demands and opportunities with a passionate, knowledgeable, and confident workforce.

Our mission has always been and continues to be to support individuals develop into knowledgeable, skilled, passionate, confident people with a desire to practice their profession with real, enthusiasm, honesty and integrity and to make a real difference in the lives of people, both young and old and their families.

The developmental of knowledge, skills and behaviours requires us to live our vision, values and beliefs and for this to be foremost in our mind when working with our clients. We really care about what we do and how we do it. We don’t just deliver a vocational training programme, workshop or accredited diploma; we delivery the very highest quality training and development programmes, taught and assessed by passionate, well-skilled tutors and lecturers who are enthusiastic, engaged and extremely committed to ensuring that our learners and delegates achieve their potential.

  • I have completed my Level 3 Early Years Educator with Leap having started this with another training company who I was unhappy with. My assessor was brilliant and guided and supported me throughout. I really like how you talk to real people and my assessor actually visited me in my workplace to offer support. I would highly recommend them
