Strategic Overview

English | Cymraeg

The National Training Federation for Wales (NTFW) is a leading body in workplace learning and we are committed to shaping and influencing the provision of apprenticeships in Wales.

To achieve our vision of developing the future workforce of Wales, it’s imperative that we continue to influence future Welsh Government policy on skills and apprenticeships to ensure parity of funding and esteem for work-based learning providers and apprentices.


Developing the future workforce of Wales


We will be recognised for:

  • Championing our members in Wales
  • Advocating positive impacts on the economy
  • World-class work-based learning by government and wider stakeholders
  • Promoting parity between vocational and academic learning

Strategic priorities

Work collaboratively with Welsh Government to influence future Welsh Government policy and thinking, ensuring parity for work-based learning (WBL) providers and its learners.

Represent NTFW membership with stakeholders throughout Wales and the UK challenging, influencing and shaping policy on skills and apprenticeships.

Drive the need for fair and transparent funding rates that reflect the real cost of delivery for all apprenticeship programmes.

Influence and help to shape Welsh Government’s new Commission for Tertiary Education building on the strengths of the WBL sector to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Work with partners to help develop capacity and professionalise the WBL apprenticeship workforce.
