Derbyshire based training company Mitre Group recently celebrated its 25th anniversary in style with all management and staff at a celebratory dinner in Derby.


In 1992, Mitre began delivering a range of bespoke leadership, management and team development programmes for senior management teams across the financial sector in the UK and Europe. Over the years, Mitre has diversified into other sectors including the sports, safety, security, community education, manufacturing and professional services, forging strong partnerships along the way, quickly establishing themselves as ‘Leaders in Training’.


Jennie Bowmer, Managing Director said “We are so proud of Mitre’s history and the number of people we have supported through our programmes. We are in the business of changing lives and organisations through providing better learning and development opportunities – an amazing business to be part of”. Jennie continued “We have an amazing team of staff who work so hard to ensure we continuously improve and evolve all our programmes – they are the reason we continue to grow and succeed”.


In February this year, Peter George and Robin Sibson, who recently left pharmaceutical services company Clinigen backed Jennie Bowmer in a management buyout from outgoing owner and founder Trevor Bowmer.


Peter said “Both Robin and I are delighted to be part of Mitre and what is an outstanding team, we are committed to improving the life chances of more people through training and creation of opportunity. Mitre have been successful over the the past 25 years due to a tremendous commitment to providing a tailored service and programmes that really make a difference to the individuals and the companies they work for. We will continue to build on its success and look forward to the next 25 years and what is an exciting future for the business.”


Mitre has expanded its reach over the years with staff based throughout the UK and offices in both the Midlands and London. They continue to work with many of the country’s leading organisations to deliver a range of programmes from tailored training workshops and executive training consultancy to pre-employment and apprenticeship programmes.


As a recognised provider by the Government’s Education and Skills Funding Agency, Mitre is an approved supplier on the Register of Training Organisations (ROTO) and Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (ROATP) and are able to access Government funding for many of its programmes.
