De Vere Training sold to Lifetime Training

De Vere Training has been sold for an undisclosed sum to LifetimeTraining, a national organisation which trains more than 20,000 learners each year in hospitality and other sectors such as fitness, retail and IT.

Alex Khan, chief executive of Lifetime Training said the acquisition will allow the company to continue to grow with a number of high-profile partners across the hospitality industry.

De Vere Training is involved in working with companies such as Caffe Nero and Brasserie Blanc.

Meanwhile, the De Vere Academy of Hospitality closed earlier this year due to the adverse financial implications of the change in financial support from central government. Originally launched in 2010 at a cost of £1m - with backing from the National Apprenticeship Service, local councils and corporate sponsors - the academy went on to open 12 centres across the UK.
