Yorkshire online training provider embraces employee-owned model


Ilkley-based online training provider High Speed Training has become an Employee Owned Trust.

The shift caps a busy month for High Speed, which also announced its successful B Corp Certification earlier in May.

Founded in 2008, High Speed Training specialises in online compliance training covering sectors from retail and hospitality, construction, education and safeguarding.

By embracing an employee-owned model, High Speed Training aims to foster a culture of shared responsibility, collaboration and long-term success.

High Speed Training has certified more than 2.5million learners in its 15 years in business under the leadership of co-founder and owner Dan Jordan, who remains on the board of directors and oversaw the transfer of the business to its employees. Companies who have benefited from its services include Waterstones and Deliveroo.

Carole Urey, chief executive of High Speed Training, said: “As High Speed Training has grown over the last 15 years, we have always focused on two key values – providing first-class training for our learners and guaranteeing security and opportunity for our colleagues. By becoming an Employee Owned Trust, we are ensuring that we can stand by both of these commitments effectively and sustainably.”
