YMCA is one of the most recognisable and iconic of all global charity brands. The YMCA movement started with us, Central YMCA. Throughout our nearly 200-year history, we’ve worked towards a world where people are happier, healthier and more fulfilled.
We’re a team of dedicated professionals who strive to reach that goal through creative health, wellbeing and education programmes. These range from fitness qualifications through to apprenticeships – everything from childcare to horticulture. We award qualifications in fitness and leisure for educational institutions in the UK and abroad. Then, of course, there’s our famous Club in central London, which is at the epicentre of contemporary wellbeing thinking and practice.
YMCA Training was created during the deep recession and mass unemployment of the late 1970s to help young people find new opportunities through work and training, and to give them the chance to play a more fulfilling role in their communities.
This focus on developing talent and providing opportunities for employment remains at the heart of what YMCA Training does, and has been consistently and successfully developed through specialist support and vocational training across many sectors and specialisms.
