We make apprenticeships work

Since our formation in 1996, we have grown to become the UK’s largest apprenticeship certification authority. From our work on domestic skills consultations to our involvement with international standards development, the Instructus name has become synonymous with advancing vocational training.

In education, in work, and in life

We are part of Instructus, a group of training and development organisations that exist to help people make progress in education, in work, and in life.

We believe that training and development are integral to growth for individuals, businesses, and communities. As a not-for-profit organisation, all proceeds from our commercial operations are fed back into our charitable activities. Through these programmes, guidance, and support, we help people from all backgrounds gain the skills and experiences they need to fulfill their potential and transform their lives.


Developing people. Transforming lives.


In 2013 the Instructus Group grew to include Instructus Skills, CQM Training & Consultancy, and the Springboard Consultancy. These unique, award-winning companies focus on different stages of professional and personal development and give us the expertise to do more with our charitable status.

By incorporating our professional services into a single end-to-end learning experience, we work with charities, community groups, and a range of other organisations to advance education for the public benefit.

We are proud to work with

Instructus Skills is a pan-sector body that represents the training needs of over 11 million employees across the UK. From consultations to certification, we ensure that apprenticeships deliver the skilled workers that employers need.

In other words, we make apprenticeships work.
