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.

TfE is the bridge from a learner's current situation to the destination of their ambitions, empowering people to reach their goals.

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

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


The varied projects offered by Training for Employment are mainly grant-funded with public money and, as such, the organisation has a moral obligation to provide a quality and monitored service to its funders and to its diverse range of learners.

The organisation will design and deliver projects which match the skills and attributes of its learners. TfE is currently 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 to other countires.

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.
