What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Assessors should accelerate apprentices’ progress by recognising prior achievement in their planning and developing a broader range of appropriate strategies for assessment.
  • All tutors need to promote and teach English and mathematics better and develop these skills more consistently in their lessons so that learners recognise their value.
  • Tutors should ensure that the targets they set are specific to the individual learner and achieved on time.
  • Managers should use the quality improvement plan to build on areas that are already good, and to develop strategies that focus on improving learning further.

What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Ensure that such things as observations of teaching and learning, quality meetings, proper use of learner tracking systems and specialist oversight of courses are used more effectively to drive up success rates consistently across the provision.
  • Use the experience of particularly high performing subcontractors, along with LLC specialist staff, to assist the poorer performing areas to adopt better practice, particularly in the classroom.
  • Encourage more, and better, staff development in subcontractors so that standards in the classroom are raised, including better planning of sessions, more learner involvement, more appropriate pace and improved questioning and assessment.
  • Improve the availability and use of data so that underperformance in courses, groups of learners and subcontractors is more readily identified allowing for prompt intervention and improvement.
