Tydfil Training

Tydfil Training Consortium Limited was founded in 1987 and incorporated as a limited company and Registered Charity in 1990.

We deliver a wide range of programmes under contract to DfES and JCP for unemployed individuals who require support and training to secure employment.
Tydfil Training prides itself on creating a supportive and safe environment for both staff and participants, working with people to give more, offering equal opportunities for all.

In 2009, Tydfil Training became partners within a consortia of like-minded training providers to form Skills Academy Wales. The consortia now delivers a wide range of Work Based Learning opportunities throughout South and Mid Wales through its contract with the Welsh Government. As a result of this partnership, participants are offered a wide range of purposeful training and work experience opportunities which support them into sustainable employment.
