We understand the positive effect that development has on personal achievement, organisational success and national productivity.

We work with a number of stakeholders in Wales including Welsh Government, Qualifications Wales, Colleges Wales, Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, NTfW and Regional Skills Partnerships to name but a few.

We also work closely with Qualifications Wales to develop contracted qualifications for Health and Social Care, and Childcare (HSCC) and Construction and Building Services Engineering (CBSE).

Funding for qualifications

We offer a wide range of qualifications and our list of funded qualifications is frequently updated via the Qualifications in Wales (QiW) database, which is owned and managed by Qualifications Wales (QW).

Qualifications listed on QiW are approved or designated by QW and eligible for funding from Welsh Government or the local authority in Wales.

To ensure that qualifications are fundable they need to be listed on QiW. If customers need qualifications added or extended on QiW, you can submit your request by completing the request form via the button below.

Our Assured service is an internationally recognised seal of approval and a business improvement tool, showing you how to take your training from good to great.

We evaluate your training programmes against our benchmark to see how they meet our quality criteria. We do not undertake a critique of the content of the training programme, but we will make sure that it caters to the needs of your learners and meets our quality standards. The Assured service adds value to any training no matter the content, format or length. We can recognise both face-to-face and e-learning, assessed or non-assessed training and even training in local languages.
