I'm an employer

The Training Quality Standard is an assessment framework and certification process which recognises and celebrates the best organisations delivering high quality, high impact training to employers.

With its research and development engaging over 600 organisations, the Standard reflects employers' priorities and expectations in sourcing training, and assesses whether providers can meet those priorities and expectations when they deliver to employers.

The Standard is designed to help employers identify not just high quality training delivery, but those organisations best able to ensure training is flexible and focused on maximising the return on their investment.

Certification against the Training Quality Standard is tough to achieve, so we can be confident in endorsing certificated organisations to employers.

The Training Quality Standard’s assessment framework has two Parts, each assessing a provider’s particular competence in delivering training and development to employers:

  • Part A focuses on responsiveness – this Part assesses how well a training provider manages its services to ensure a high quality customer experience to each employer they work with.
  • Part B focuses on sector expertise – this Part assesses how well a provider develops an understanding of a particular local sector or industry, and deploys products and services to meet those employers’ requirements.

If you are looking for a training provider to deliver training to your staff and want to be confident that the provider works to high standards of quality and impact, sourcing a Training Quality Standard certificated provider is a good place to start.
