A group of education and training specialists

Creating long term value to our clients, shareholders and the communities we serve

We are a commercially minded Group with a big heart

Progress to Excellence Group is made up of a number of education and training providers who operate nationally throughout England. We are a commercially minded Group with a big heart. Our passion for giving back and supporting individuals to achieve their potential is achieved via our group of companies.

We have enjoyed vast growth over the past 12 months, accelerated via our partnership with Praesidian Capital Europe, a leading provider of private investment. Following recent expansion, the Group now includes an adult skills provision, an end-point assessment organisation for apprenticeships, a commercial training arm which operates within the construction sector, a nationally based organisation with independent secondary schools based across England and a pre-employment training business.

Beyond education and training, we have a strong commitment to supporting the local communities where we work and believe that small efforts can have a big impact. We are proud to support a wide range of charitable organisations, to help them to reach more people in need.

Bringing our impact to life

We are committed to delivering social value and economic impact, and so felt that it was important, in today’s era, to measure this for ourselves. To this end, we engaged FirstArk to produce our first social and economic impact report. Some key statistics can be found below, but visit our Commitment page to view our complete report.

Contribution to economy

For every pound spent by the group, an additional £1.07 for the economy is generated. In 2018, spending with the group generated an impressive £11.7 million for the local economy. This is made up of employee and supply chain spend, jobs generated and training delivered within our supply chain as a result of our business.

Demonstrating the impact of our work

Through our subsidiaries, Progress to Excellence Group helps to facilitate the social mobility of individuals. We work with those from age 13, all the way up to retirement age, supporting them to develop their skills and knowledge in a number of sectors.

Across our group, we have established strong relationships with the likes of local authorities, the Ministry of Justice, Job Centres, referral partners and employers to name just a few. Our strong partner network allows us to support individuals to achieve their goals.
Via our range of independent alternative education settings, adult skills provision and commercial training, we are able to support individuals to achieve nationally recognised vocational qualifications.
