About Us

Skills Academy Wales was established as the first Work-Based Learning Partnership of its kind in Wales in October 2009. In response to the challenges set out in the Transformation Agenda for Post-16 Education in Wales, the Partnership brought together a diverse range of outstanding and like-minded WBL providers who continue to lead on these challenges by widening the options available for all learners and reducing costly duplication of provision.
