I'm a stakeholder

This section of the website is for all those interested in the Standard regardless of their background or role.

Here, you can use the links on the left hand side to direct you to the relevant areas of the website where you will find everything you need to know about the Training Quality Standard.

The Training Quality Standard is an assessment framework and an assessment and certification process which has been designed to recognise and celebrate the best organisations delivering high quality, high impact training and development solutions to employers.

Developed with employers, the Standard has been designed to reflect employers' priorities and expectations in sourcing training and development solutions, and to establish that providers have the necessary steps in place to meet those priorities and expectations when employers are sourcing training.

It is the only standard dedicated to helping employers identify not just high quality training, but the organisations best equipped to ensure training is both flexible and approached in a manner that will help them establish 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.
