The Board of Trustees

Led by Experience

The Instructus Board of Trustees is made up of senior representatives from multiple sectors. Each Trustee volunteers their time and expertise to ensure that we deliver on our remit as successfully as we possibly can.

As the Board of Trustees operates in service of the wider Instructus group, their work also helps to steer and develop our charitable programmes.

With group experience spanning decades in work-based learning and development, we understand how important relevant skills training is for your organisation.

Why We Stand Out

As the UK’s largest apprenticeship certification authority, we’ve played an integral role in apprenticeships since our formation in 1996. Whether you know us for certification or skills consultations, our work helps you to manage your apprenticeships and vocational training.

Yet this isn’t all that we do.

We are proud to be part of the Instructus Group, a family of organisations that exist to help people progress in education, in work, and in life. Through a range of funded and part-funded support programmes we help people to fulfill their potential.
