Lifetime scores hat-trick at Active Training Awards 2015

Lifetime Training scooped a trio of awards as the leading lights of physical activity sector training gathered in Marlow last night (26 November) to celebrate 2015’s top achievers at the second annual Active Training Awards.

Lifetime landed three of the ten awards on offer: Best use of Technology, Large Training Provider of the Year and Apprenticeship Provider of the Year. Other winners of this year’s awards included GLL, Nuffield Health, Fusion Lifestyle, Jubilee Hall Trust, Gemma Quinnell, Schwinn Cycling and Richard Latham of Places for People Leisure.

“This year has been characterised by change at Lifetime and we have developed many new strands to our programmes," said Lifetime Training client services director Nigel Wallace.

"Winning three awards was a huge endorsement of the direction we’re heading. It is great to receive the recognition for the hard work and dedication of our team and the brilliant partnerships we have with our clients."

More than 200 delegates from the industry’s top training companies, employers, higher education providers and commercial vocational providers were at the event to hail exceptional performance and commitment to vocational training and development. The Active IQ-sponsored event is jointly-delivered by ukactive and CIMSPA.

All of the finalists demonstrated strong performance and commitment to vocational education, training and development across the physical activity sector, and to recognise this fierce commitment, three finalists received ‘Outstanding Achievement’ awards.

Primal Health Academy was recognised for its entry for Small Training Provider, with the expert judging panel blown away by its dedication to training professionals in local authorities, the fire service, and local colleges and universities.

HFE Training displayed a 97 per cent positive response rate from its learners, a sign of true learner focus. YMCA Fit performed consistently across all stages of assessment, and being just pipped to the post in this incredibly highly-contested category, were recognised for its entry to Large Training Provider of the Year.

“The Active Training Awards are a fantastic initiative celebrating excellence in the training and development of our workforce,” said ukactive executive director Steven Ward.

“Building the workforce that fits the needs of a growing sector is one of the greatest challenges we face, and events such as the ATAs are a superb example of how we can come together to drive standards up, improve quality and recognise success.”
