Welcome to ElevateYou Training Services Ltd, an industry accredited MHE (Material Handling Equipment) training provider that edifies, encourages and educates your valued colleagues. Based in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, we provide an on-site nationwide service to a range of industry sectors.

From its inception, Elevate You Training Services Ltd's main aim has been to provide tailormade training that promotes high quality, safe work performance from candidates, NOT to be just a cheap way to issue operator certificates. Certificates do not make operators safe or efficient - good training and proper supervision does.

After 25 years of experience in driving, leading MHE drivers and having a multitude of different instructors, Scott Bates decided to create ElevateYou Training Services Ltd with the goal to educate, edify and encourage the candidates rather than be a mundane tick box exercise. We look at every candidate as a valued individual, so if your employees are just a number, we are probably not for you.

We understand that being a leader in a very fast-paced world within an ever-changing environment can be a challenge. At Elevate You, we understand all about operational realities and will try our upmost to make your life a little easier by shaping the training around your requirements while strictly adhering to HSE legislation and guidelines. Elevate You only use experienced instructors, all with a logistics management backgrounds, ensuring you achieve your training requirements.

We offer on-site 'Train the Trainer' courses and Nebosh Qualified Health and Safety Work and Training, including writing up risk assessments, SSOW, Incident investigation, safety policies etc. We have a trusted network of industry professionals that work alongside us, so if you can't see what you are looking for, we can pointyou in the direction of those who can.

Here at ElevateYou we pride ourselves on paying our invoices on time or before, and are proud to adhere to the PPC. The Prompt Payment Code (PPC) is a voluntary code of practice for businesses, administered by the Office of the Small Business Commissioner (SBC) on behalf of BEIS. It was established in December 2008 and sets standards for payment practices between organisations of any size and their suppliers. The ethos of the code: pay suppliers on time, within agreed terms; give clear guidance to suppliers on terms, dispute resolution and prompt notification of late payment and support good practice throughout the supply chain by encouraging adoption of the Code.
