We connect with students, employers, and relevant agencies to form a diverse community of learning. We believe the growth and development of the local community lies in having open and honest communication, linking the right people with the right companies.

Positive Feedback

“Having worked in the education and training industry for over 22 years, I have seen the landscape change immensely, with new initiatives, technologies and courses being at the forefront of change. What has not changed are the core values that all educators should possess. 

LEAD was created with a simple value in mind, which underpins everything we do. This is to care: care for our learners: care for our businesses: care for the community. Our mission has been and still is to prepare individuals to be bold, independent thinkers who can LEAD transformative lives and impact the world in a positive way.

We have a strong belief that teaching and learning elements of any training program is vital to the growth and development of people. It is in the classroom (virtual or face to face) where relationships are built, learning takes place and individuals can have real discussions about their future goals.  We understand that people have a range of individual needs that can only be responded to in a caring and nurturing environment.

Our proudest moments do not stem just from getting people into jobs and seeing businesses succeed, but through our learners telling us they feel more confident, gained specific skills and up to date knowledge linked to their ambitions and are ready to take the next steps on their development journey. 

LEAD believe it is the human touch that has the biggest impact on people, with this in mind our growth has been directly linked to the efforts of all staff working as part of the LEAD family.”
