Weldability Sif Foundation

The Weldability Sif Foundation is a charity, registered in the UK (#1142419), which was formed in 2012 with the specific objective of facilitating an increase in the provision of vocational welder training at FE colleges, UTCs, universities, schools and academies across the UK and Ireland.

In order to achieve this objective, The Weldability Sif Foundation makes a series of grant payments to institutions each year, by way of matched-funding, against capital equipment purchases and ongoing curriculum delivery costs. Centres operating ‘welding studios’ which deliver vocational welder training courses meeting the required criteria are able to submit applications for grants annually over a five year programme.

Since its inception, The Weldability Sif Foundation has supported over 30 institutions in commencing – or expanding – their provision for welder training. These ‘welding studios’ have subsequently delivered over 4,000 welding qualifications, to the suite of Awards, Certificates or Diplomas developed by EAL (Semta) in partnership with The Weldability Sif Foundation.

If your college, school, UTC or academy is planning or reviewing its welding course provision, why not enquire whether The Weldability Sif Foundation is able to offer assistance?
