ETA specialise in industry focused solutions that deliver robust quality frameworks, supporting and enhancing our customer’s propositions.


ETA are an Awarding Organisation regulated by both Ofqual in England and CCEA in Northern Ireland . We specialise in industry focused solutions that deliver robust quality frameworks, supporting and enhancing our customer’s propositions.


As well as a range of regulated qualifications of varying sizes including Award, Certificate and Diploma and across Levels 1 – 4, ETA specialises in offering a range of services to support both international and domestic employers in developing the skills of their workforce, through ETA Business Solutions.


At ETA we work in partnership with our centres, not only to enhance the delivery to the employer and learner, but also to ensure that we are instrumental in upholding robust quality standards and the continuous improvement of your centre.


ETA has a longstanding history of working successfully with employers to deliver both apprenticeship requirements and specific bespoke programmes, either directly with the employer or through a partnering Training provider. Our specialist consultants work in conjunction with training managers, HR and business leaders to identify in-house practice and process, and then map these directly into qualification outcome requirements. Streamlining the entire process this not only reduces time away from the shop floor but also enhances the experience for the delivery team, the learner and employer.



"We were pleased with the level of commitment shown by the new team at ETA ... ETA’s strengthened system of controls and capability should enable it to maintain ongoing compliance with its Conditions of Recognition. I appreciate the efforts you and your colleagues have made”

Mr. Phil Beach
Executive Director for Vocational and Technical Qualifications, OFQUAL

Quality of Service

‘’We recently had an issue with a company who required their employees certificate as a matter of urgency. Rather than wait for the planned EQA Visit I was able to contact ETA who responded immediately and sanctioned an interim visit. The EQA called in to the college the following day and reviewed the candidates evidence. The EQA sent through his report and the candidate was in receipt of his certificate on the third day. This issue was dealt with professionally, decisively and with the minimum of fuss while maintaining the integrity of the EQA process. This is the kind of personal service that places ETA ahead of the competition.’’

Working with Industry

‘’We have worked on a number of industrial projects in partnership with ETA. Through their supportive and innovative approaches, we were able to design and deliver a range of on site assessment programmes that made collection of evidence easier that it would normally would have been. This involved the use of work based recorders and using an integral approach with the production systems that are in place in the organisations. ETA really understand the industry and their needs!’’

Customer Service

‘’From the first moment you speak to the office you just know you will get the assistance you require. All requests and communications are dealt with in a professional and courteous manner.’’
