Consultations & Surveys

Define Your Industry's Skills

Apprenticeships and training must be continuously developed in order for work-based learning to truly match the range of challenges you face. This is where we can help.

For over 20 years, Instructus Skills has served as a UK Skills Sector Body. We collaborate with you to assess and update a wide range of apprenticeship Frameworks and National Occupational Standards (NOS), whether you are an employer, a sector representative, or a training provider.

Recent highlights of our work include:

  • Collaborating with Skills Development Scotland to create new NOS for Digital Marketing
  • Reviewing and updating a variety of NOS including Business and Administration, Management and Leadership, and Customer Service
  • Reviewing a framework for degree-level apprenticeships in Wales
  • Reviewing qualification products for Scotland

Partners have included national skills organisations, multinational corporations, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). These organisations have placed their trust in us to provide the professional insight that will best inform future skills development.

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.
