About Us

The Business Learning Foundation Logo

The Business Learning Foundation is a learning and development provider and consultancy company that specialises in management development, soft skills training, team building and business coaching. Also available is our own range of psychometrics and e-Books to support the various methods of development.

70% of our delivery is comprised of bespoke, in-house requirements, designed specifically for the client to meet their commercial objectives. The rest of our delivery is through public, open courses which are run across the UK for individuals and organisations with smaller requirements.

Being an ILM approved centre not only offers clients the option of an accredited program in either management or business coaching, but it shows the high level to which we operate as the approval requires regular quality checks by the official awarding body.

We are renowned for our innovative exercises used throughout all of our development programmes. Our blended learning approach and exercises keep delegates energised, engaged, inspired and underpin the learning in a way which can be directly related and applied back into the workplace.

Founded in 1985 in Nottingham, we have built an impressive and loyal client base (see the logos on the right for a small selection of some of our past and present clients). Our partnerships are built by consistently delivering outstanding development solutions and working in close collaboration with our clients. In the last couple of years we have expanded our operation with training centres in Reading, Dartford and Manchester.

We practice what we preach and we strongly believe in developing our own staff and ensuring they have the motivation and drive to move our business and yours forward.
