Leading Welsh Comparison Website Partners with Quality Skills Alliance through Cardiff and Vale College

Published on 21/07/2016

Comparison website and insurance broker ActiveQuote is participating in the Apprentice Programme, part of the Quality Skills Alliance (QSA).

 The Cardiff -based health and protection insurance comparison website, is supporting six students through the Apprentice Programme.



The QSA is a consortium of work based learning providers, with Cardiff and Vale College as the lead provider, offering a package of support to employers in Wales. The Apprentice Programme, funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund (ESF) provides a development framework which supports learning and growth for each apprentice. Welsh Government statistics show that 77% of businesses who have trained apprentices believe it made their company more competitive.

The Apprentice Framework delivers a rounded package of training, with Knowledge and Essential Skills being learnt in the classroom, complimented with Practical skills gained through the work based placement. Combined, they support the development of a talented and skilled workforce in Wales.

Gemma Williams, HR & Learning Manager at ActiveQuote said the opportunity to support a talented group of students as they begin their careers is exciting, and recognition that as a business, ActiveQuote continues to invest in developing its team.

She added “We’re passionate about supporting skills development across our entire business. Our apprentices are now part of our business, and developing the skills base of our whole team is key to our growth strategy. We’re thrilled to be working closely with our friends at Cardiff and Vale College on this initiative”.

Andrew Whitcombe, Chief of Operations for QSA and CAVC Apprenticeships at Cardiff and Vale College said “It’s always fantastic when a company new to the world of Apprenticeships contacts us. That contact allows us as the apprenticeship provider to guide the company through the apprenticeship framework and then assist the organisation in recruiting its apprenticeship cohort. Cardiff and Vale college have been very successful in creating bespoke apprenticeship models with leading organisations, Active quote is the latest organisation to realise the value of such a scheme to a business “ I look forward to developing and growing their provision in the true spirit of collaboration and partnership “

The Apprentice Programme is available to any business in Wales, whatever side or sector. For more information visit

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.
