Lifetime Training: Celebrating Excellence

Lifetime Training and Mitchells & Butlers PLC were delighted to take home a win at last week’s Learning Excellence Awards, with their successful partnership winning them the Retail, Hospitality, Sport and Leisure sector award.

Mitchells & Butlers and Lifetime’s partnership started in 2016 with the aim to make M&B an employer of choice for under-25s and to develop clear career pathways to develop their existing workforce.

Since then, their apprenticeship population has doubled, with a 149% increase in existing employees enrolling onto apprenticeships and 64% increase in recruited apprentices.


Coach Core took home the Apprenticeship Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Provider at the 2023 FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards:


‘To win this award in a very special year for the charity, as we celebrate a decade of changing over 800 young lives up and down the country, is amazing. Coach Core wants to level up the playing field for all young people – no matter their background. We can’t do this alone, so this award is not just for us but also for the incredible employers, supporting partners and our training provider Lifetime Training.”
