About us

Fair Train is a charity, an employer and a business. We are the owners of the national Work Experience Quality Standard accreditation and the Group Training Association (GTA) for the voluntary and community sector. 

We promote workforce development and champion all forms of high quality work experience including traditional work placements, vocational training, volunteering (where it is specifically aimed at developing employability skills) internships, Traineeships and Apprenticeships

We believe fiercely in the benefits of work experience, not only for learners who want to kick start their career, but also for employers looking to recruit the best talent and see the best results.

We believe work experience deserves to be celebrated, which is why we organise Work Experience Week, which takes place during October each year. Work Experience Week is an opportunity to raise the profile and celebrate the benefits of high quality Work Experience and encourage young people, employers and providers to share their experiences and opportunities through social media and local and national events.
