Whether it is training those that are out of work or supporting the skills and development of those at work, we have implemented a range of initiatives in the design, implementation and evaluation of skills, vocational education and lifelong learning programmes - as well as the professional development of teachers, trainers, tutors, coaches, mentors and guidance staff, including leadership and management skills.  

Our current work in this area includes the development and management of innovative vocational education and training partnerships; designing projects that deliver non-formal, informal and lifelong learning programmes; and pre-vocational and foundation learning initiatives. Specific examples include:

  • New Apprenticeships 
  • Developing new vocational qualification centres and assessment capabilities to offer National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs), IAG and Matrix
  • Train the Trainer programmes (including qualification assessors and verifiers)
  • Designing learning and guidance toolkits
  • Developing new competency frameworks for vocational educators
  • Quality assurance and evaluation of national and international learning initiatives.
