About PETA

PETA Ltd was established in 1970 as a registered Charity limited by guarantee of its Members, of which there are currently over 350, and delivers a range of courses, training programmes and advisory services all developed with the needs of employers and young people in mind.

With sites in Hampshire; Cosham, Havant and Portsmouth PETA continues to grow and now has an extensive offering including:

  • Apprenticeships and Traineeships

  • Courses, seminars, briefings and workshops

  • Conference facility hire

  • Advisory and consultancy

Our professionalism, quality and practical approach to delivery of services has enabled us to gain a reputation as one of the largest and most respected training organisations on the south coast of England.


What we do for business

People development is at the core of what we do both locally, in Hampshire, the south coast and nationally. We specialise in helping our customers develop their people to make a difference - by the range of open courses available to all, through the customisation of programmes that are unique to the client's organisation, the provision of advisory and consultancy services to provide hands-on support when it's needed the most and through cost-effective Apprenticeship solutions which enable companies to grow and develop young people to become the leaders of the future.

In addition, businesses can hire training and conference facilities at One Access Point in Cosham, which boasts a superb facility, fully air-conditioned with on-site catering and parking and your very own event co-ordinator to ensure your event is successful in every way.


What we do for young people

It's a tough world and the right decisions are hard to find when it comes to leaving school.  Apprenticeships are a great way to earn, learn, gain qualifications and, more importantly, develop the skills employers need - PETA will help with identifying what's best for the individual and finding a suitable employer.

Naturally, we do not all come in the same box with the same interests or needs in life and therefore we have three types of programmes to help young people to get themselves into work, an Apprenticeship or on to college;

  • Traineeships - employers want people to join their organisations with some knowledge and skills in both the workplace and the job role, this programme is aimed at doing exactly that through giving the basic skills needed and for finding an employer so that a full Apprenticeship can be secured.
  • Apprenticeships - an excellent programme which is on-the-job and is widely recognised by employers as one of the preferred routes to developing young staff and offers qualifications, skills and personal development directly related to the job role.

All of the above programmes are funded for those aged 16-18 with no fees to pay!
