Improving your Workforce Skills

Each organisations has it’s own unique needs, so whether you are looking for regulated qualifications, access to individual units or flexible programmes of study, we can support you in improving workforce skills across your organisation. We work closely with employers across our range of products to ensure that they meet regional and national needs, and also meet the needs of employers and their learners.

Quality Licence Scheme

Our Quality Licence Scheme has been specifically designed to support organisations who offer high-quality training in a non-regulated environment. We ensure you meet a criteria of high standards and endorse your organisation for its commitment to meeting those standards.


Apprenticeships are a great way to train young people and adults in a wide range of industries, combining on-the-job experience with knowledge and competence gained from relevant qualifications. We offer regulated qualifications which support more than 50 apprenticeships in nine major UK industries. Find out more here or download our Apprenticeship Guide.


If you are working with people who aren’t quite ready for apprenticeships then a traineeship might be the solution. Traineeships are designed for young people to prepare them for the world of work and provide them with crucial employability skills, English and maths while also completing a work placement.

Unit Bank

Our Unit Bank contains over 1,500 units from Entry Level 1 to Level 6 across a wide range of industries. The Unit Bank is specifically designed to offer our Centres the flexibility to tailor a programme to suit individual needs, for example by upskilling an employee in a particular area of work.


If you are helping people to get back into employment or sustain employment then we can support you with a range of Entry Level and Level 1 employability qualifications. We also offer qualifications for people working in the Employment Services sector, to help train those who are helping others to find work.

Regulated Qualifications

Alternatively, if you are an expert in a particular industry and you would like to begin offering teaching of regulated qualifications, we can support you in meeting the criteria to become an ABC Awards Recognised Centre. We already work with many employers who have used their industry expertise to begin teaching and we can help you to do the same.
