We are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted!
We are so proud to announce that following our recent, and first ever, Ofsted inspection that we have been rated as ‘Good.’ This is a fantastic achievement for the whole team and we couldn’t have got there without the everyone pulling together to deliver the best possible training for our learners.
Its not in our nature to brag, however Ofsted identified that we are great at getting our learners on the right track from the start:
The information, advice and guidance that learners receive at the start of their programmes are good. Trainer assessors meet with employers and learners to ensure that the programme meets their needs. As a result, learners are on the right course at the right level, and the qualification units chosen match closely the interests of learners and their job roles. Trainer assessors identify relevant career choices throughout the programme.
And, we practice what we preach – our team’s development is important to us. We make sure that our trainers are at the top of their game so that they can give you and your team the best possible learning experience.
The continued professional development and training for all staff has a high priority, supported by a 24-month professional development programme designed to develop a team of teachers qualified to level 5 in learning and development and coaching and mentoring. Performance management is clear and effective.
