The Omniverse:-  is a vast collection of every single “Universe, Multiverse and Metaverse” both real and imagined.  True? Yes! it includes everything from our amazing Universe to the parallel universes and fictional universes.

We are the longest running independent Consultant to awarding bodies.  We have trained hundreds of NHS Health Trainers for City & Guilds. 300 SME staff for ILM (Institute of Leadership & Management). We’ve supported 1700 Active Citizenships “City & Guilds” during delivery and have access to 3million research books, helping save 30,000 trees a year, that is a small forest.

Ominverse aim to train 240 SME (Small Medium Enterprise) Senior Apprenticeships worth £2million in 2023 across Northern England. It is our belief the UK’s 5 million SMEs deserve a pathway degree that signify SME skills and leadership.  Five million SMEs each has a CEO, it is  scandalous they are not in line to gain an equivalent to a traditional academic degree when many of them are providing the physical training places for University Apprentices to attend.  SMEs are full of skill areas, innovation, empathy, inspiration and real work life challenges faced daily in running an SME. We see qualities at these SME “coal faces”  in abundance in the North of England.  Job degrees will be a good way to prove the importance of SME quality leadership. 


Our SME research seeks a lively new partnership to help motivate the Northern Powerhouse’s education, training and skills approach;  using our City and Guilds and ILM’s leadership, mentoring and management courses. This is a great opportunity to shape dynamic Apprenticeships into the green economy, sports clubs, health and therapy clinics, physical activity centres and boost mental health.  In Cumbria the “healthier community” programme gives a solid case study to “level up” Northern England’s young people, encouraging better health choices in workplaces.

Data analysis and digital resources are lacking in many of our 5 million SMEs that have post Covid priorities.  The SMEs need quality business partners, new technology and competitive growth skills.  We already help shape the future in our SME network that reaches over 600,000 customers.  Post Covid we believe SME opportunities are limitless.

Trevor Burchick MBE our founder CEO created UK’s Pridegames & Global’s Pridesports, connecting  over 14,000 sports and leisure LGBTQi volunteers using 170 organisers.  He personally wrote the City & Guilds qualification called Active Citizenship and Trev is a leading Sports Therapy voice, plus being an enterprise skills pioneer.  Trevor’s unique mentoring helped develop SMEs from starting up to million pound turnovers and NHS Health Services into million pound grant winners. He raised over £250,000 into volunteers events and charities including a Trek bike-ride from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel’s Tower raising funds for the British Heart Foundation.


Trevor Burchick MBE. CEO “Carrying the Olympic torch was a proud part of my life, everyone was 100% happy“.  Trevor in 2012 was awarded the Lifetime Honorary Membership of The City & Guilds Institute.

Ominverse fully understand UK University or College is not for everyone.  Yes, it is OK to drop out.  Data tells us 74% of first year University students think about dropping out finding ‘Uni’ is not for them. That’s 300,000 each year young people who’d be better doing Apprenticeships. We believe these 300,000 could take up a climate apprenticeship programme by reforms to the apprenticeship levy in England (see Centre News Project 3).

Climate Apprenticeships – (new)

Networking:- while developing the Climate Apprenticeships Award our UK contacts included:- British Council, The Lowry Arts, SCC Tech Train, WeBuyBooks, Stratagem Consultancy. NW Sports Organisations, Trident Manufacturing, BBC, Department of Communities, British Heart Foundation, Health staff from Blackpool, Warrington, Rotherham,  Stockport, Ashton, Stoke and Blackburn.  Doncaster ITeC, Pridegames, Camping and Caravanning Club, Uswim, STA, Mountain Warehouse,  English Heritage, City & Guilds, NCVO, Mexborough Business Centre, Voluntary Action, Manchester’s Airport, Learning for Living, Pride and Marketing Manchester, ILM, Yorkshire’s Wildlife Park, Jet 2, Always Aim High, Trek, Coop, National Grid For Learning, Mind plus individuals whom we acknowledge with respect and our lasting gratitude.

Omniverse Academy:-  stands for quality in UK’s Apprenticeships:- (better in Leadership, Mentoring and Social Value Workers).

There were 5.5 million SME (small medium businesses) in the UK at the start of 2021. Government Levy grant access proves a problem to many.  We seek to remove frustration by working to create SME new Apprenticeship handbooks in the style of our popular IPAC which we wrote for City & Guilds. SMEs need life skill progression to build an enterprising competitive edge.

One of our equality events.  “If it doesn’t challenge you, it will not make much difference in life – enjoy taking part”

We meet major awarding body quality high standards with our trophy winning team that showcases our pedigree provider excellence.




Project 1: Currently developing the new Climate Apprenticeships Award handbook for the awarding body based on our successful launch of the Active Citizenship at City & Guilds; an innovative, stimulating project from consultations with Hazel Blears (then Cabinet Minister working for (Sir) Tony Blair, plus Gordon Brown PM as his Communities Cohesion Minister). Others included David Cameron PM (pictured below) and many community care teams (see networking list).

Omniverse aim to Ed Tech connect 50,000 Climate Apprenticeships worth £22million using a new Ed-Tech adult learning platform. This high priority vocational area has been lacking and deserves a redesign of the Government Levy system to offer more choice to individuals in helping them safeguard our planet.

Project 2: ILM based Senior Mentor courses (levels 4, 5, 6 & 7) to help better support post-apprenticeships going into employment.  Motivation, innovation, equality, respect, diversity, leadership and keeping pace with technology will be mentor skill qualities.  Our aim will be for 30 Senior Mentors to achieve ILM Level 7 with each building their own Skills Academy. A new Ed Tech Climate Skills Platform will help provide capacity builder solutions to the UK skills shortage; delivering 1500 northern green economy apprenticeships by 2030.

Project 3:  The future of your planet is at risk in ways we cannot truly comprehend. As a responsible Awarding Body Approved Centre we must help build the skills, knowledge and understanding approach to the needs of our Global World. From protecting your local Environment to combating Climate Change.  All must do their part which is why these are high priority areas to infuse into Awarding Body responsible learning programmes.

Project 4:  Green Economy is important to us all.  Our latest project will seek 1 million education research books put online for apprenticeships to access knowledge.  This Ed-Tech feature will save millions of books. The aim is to help save 250,000 trees within 5 years and for all apprenticeships to take part in helping save our planet.
