Invest In Developing Your Employees

University of Wales Trinity Said David offers free industry-led higher and degree apprenticeships to transform your workforce.

UWTSD is looking for employers who would like to partner with them to up-skill the workforce in Wales. The degrees offered by UWTSD combined with daily practical on-the-job experience support students to apply the knowledge gained directly to the workplace.
