UK Rural Skills

UKRS is an accrediting body that supports training providers and instructors, saving them time and money by offering a service that is cost effective and simplistic to use. We raise rural training standards by offering quality assured, accredited courses through our training provider membership scheme.

New members can try the service for free for 3 months with extremely competitive membership fees after that time.  Using our 425+ course standards and 50+ quality assurance policies brings peace of mind and assurance that both your business and courses are being run to at least minimum standards in terms of safety and compliance.

If you have your own unique or bespoke courses, we can do the work necessary to get your course into a format and shape to get it accredited. Accreditation adds strength to your training provision, showing you are delivering training to a nationally recognised standard, helping to attract more business.
