About STF

The Scottish Training Federation (STF) represents over 140 training providers operating in the field of work based training across Scotland.

STF members comprise a broad mix of independent training providers, group training associations, colleges and local authority training departments – and cover a wide range of occupational areas, from traditional craft apprenticeships through to service sector occupations.

The majority of STF members are involved in the delivery of government funded training including Modern Apprenticeships and Employability Fund programmes in Scotland.

Lobbying activity

STF is widely regarded as the ‘voice of training providers in Scotland’ operating in the work based training industry and is regularly consulted by all of the key stakeholders on policy development and implementation.

The STF Chief Executive and Board Members have regular meetings with senior staff at Skills Development Scotland and Scottish Government to lobby on behalf of members.

Member workshops

Free workshops are held every month to update members on policy changes and new initiatives such as GDPR, Individual Training Accounts, Foundation/Graduate Apprenticeships and the Apprenticeships Levy.
