The training industry refers to the businesses, institutions, and individuals involved in providing education, training, and professional development services to individuals and organisations.
The sector includes various types of training programs, such as vocational training, technical training, language training, leadership development, and soft-skills training. Training requirements for businesses are becoming increasingly enshrined, whether these are regulatory driven or simply ensuring that businesses meet the demands for internal staff development.
Training for all sectors has developed rapidly through the use of technology. Organisations with excellent content, delivery platforms and market reach are very enticing to funders, who recognise the growing need for initial training, CPD and certification.
