We are a training provider based in the heart of Birmingham, West Midlands offering a range of employability programmes to kick-start young people’s careers. Our programmes are especially designed to develop the key skills needed to gain employment. Over the last 30 years we have built a strong reputation for identifying and maximising young people’s potential with emphasis on helping our learners establish a positive attitude towards themselves, others and their work.Gordon Franks Training was established in 1983 and at its last OFSTED inspection was graded a grade 2 “Good”. Provision consists of a short study programme to prepare young people for employment, traineeships and apprenticeships, mainly in childcare, administration and customer service. Most learners are recruited from central Birmingham and neighbouring areas with significant levels of deprivation and high numbers of young people not in education, employment or training.

Our Vision


Here at Gordon Franks Training we believe that we develop people from the INSIDE OUT and not outside in. Our inside out approach recognises that people change and grow from within through challenging experiences, positive role models and aspiration.
