What support is available to my business?
We’re proud of our Welsh roots and passionate about making a positive impact on communities and industries – it’s our mission to support Welsh businesses.
As a business based in Wales, you could access free training for your staff. We can help them to develop existing or build new skills which your employees can then inject into your business. And if you’re recruiting new staff, which can be time-consuming and expensive, we can even support you with their recruitment at no cost.
As one of only ten Welsh Government contracted training providers, we are able to offer free, fully-funded training and help with the recruitment of new staff. We’re passionate about supporting Welsh companies and helping you access the funding available.
Many of our courses are available to anyone over the age of 16 and are offered across a range of industries, from business, health and social care, and childcare, to animal care, hairdressing, and energy management.

Why is staff development important?
For businesses to grow, there needs to be new ways of working and new skills and ideas injected into the business. By developing your staff, they will learn new skills that they can use in their job, helping to boost the company. For companies struggling with staff retention, offering employees training and development makes them feel valued and helps with motivation.
We are here to support and grow your business. As our qualifications are fully-funded, there is no cost to you as the business, or the employee. Our fully-funded courses are a fantastic way to upskill your current staff with the latest skills and training or help with recruiting new staff to fill vacancies.
