Holts Academy is quite simply unique amongst training providers. A big claim, yes. But behind the claim, the very heart of the Academy lies in our reason for existing…

Set up in 1999 by Holts Lapidary, the renowned gemstone and fine jewellery specialists in Hatton Garden, we understand the industry because we are part of the industry. As a not for profit social enterprise we are engaged in the sector for the passion of adult education and training and the very real impact it can have on creating business growth.

We are located in the heart of the UK jewellery industry, Hatton Garden. This provides a total trade experience. Our training does not take place in classrooms. All our facilities are built and equipped as real workshops, replicating those of a real life manufacturer. Coupled with the calibre of tutors, learning at the Academy is as close as you can get to learning on the job.

We create opportunities for business, for individuals and for the industry, we support new start-ups, we link designers with manufacturers, and we foster sustainable business growth, training over 600 learners per year in all aspects of the trade and adding jewellery businesses to London's economy, we are the only jewellery manufacturing dedicated training provider in the south of England and Hatton Garden. The Academy also engages with the local community, working with some of the most deprived community groups in London, providing opportunities for people to return to work and enter the trade.

The Academy does not operate ‘term time’ only training. We are open all year, providing a variety of options for learning, be it during the day, evening or weekends. No less than you would expect.

Until now, we have been a well kept secret, and yet have achieved a number of awards and accolades which include; Queens Award for Enterprise Promotion 2006 (Jason Holt – Founder of the Academy), UK Jewellery Awards for Retail Innovation 2005, London Business Awards Commitment to the Community 2004, London Enterprise Competition 2004 and National Training Awards 2002 amongst many others.

In short, we deliver world-class training using world-class resources.
