The BFA Training Trust

The BFA Training Trust works to support the British footwear industry through training initiatives. In line with the terms of the Trust, our current priority is developing the new, industry led apprenticeships, and supporting engagement by firms and training providers.

This will remain the focus of our work until mid-2019. Our priorities for the next two years will be debated at our next Trustees meeting in March 2019. We are most grateful for the additional support from the Worshipful Company of Cordwainers on the important apprenticeship agenda.
