Travel Skills & Quality Board

Driving the quality of travel apprenticeships and aligning other workplace skills and vocational education activities through one strategic, employer-led board.

The Travel Skills & Quality Board brings together travel employers to drive the quality of apprenticeships, ensuring they remain fit for purpose, but also has a wider interest to align other workplace skills and vocational education activities in the UK.

Critically, the board brings together employers and other stakeholders, including industry bodies and learning provider representation, to act with ‘one voice’.

Members of the board

Members play a significant role in overseeing the external quality assurance of apprenticeships as well as ensuring we have a planned and coordinated approach to skills, which can only be achieved through a genuine partnership between employers, delivery partners and other relevant stakeholders.
