Training for Employment is a not-for-profit Social Enterprise established in 2011 to cater for the needs of individuals in Yorkshire seeking to start up their own businesses, become self-employed, to obtain a new job or to change their career direction.

Training for Employment is proud to hold the Matrix Standard. Matrix is a quality standard for providers of Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) services.

TfE holds the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation. IIP is a framework of best practice for improving business performance through investment in its people.


The various projects offered by Training for Employment are generally grant-funded with public money and, therefore, the organisation has a moral obligation to provide a quality and monitored service to its diverse range of clients.

The organisation will design and deliver projects which match the range of the skills and attributes of its staff at any one time. TfE is constantly looking for new ventures to extend the scope of its activities at home and abroad, and welcomes approaches with regard to exporting its learning materials.

Quality Management

The Quality Policy puts ‘Quality at the heart of delivery’. TfE is proud to hold both the Matrix and the Investors in People (IiP) standards of accreditation. Having acquired the Matrix and the Investors in People standards, TfE is committed to maintaining these principles and making continuous improvements to its quality.
