The Strategic Development Network (SDN) is a team of leading experts in FE, HE and apprenticeships

We support training and education organisations to launch, grow, adapt and improve their provision. We also work closely with employers and government.

SDN has been heavily involved in the apprenticeship reforms – we’ve worked with over 80 employer groups developing new standards, whilst supporting 900 apprenticeship organisations and 3,000 staff to prepare to deliver apprenticeship standards and end-point assessment. SDN are also authors of the Future Apprenticeships toolkit.

We offer industry-leading consultancy, events, resources, and research; and deliver national support programmes
