What does the provider need to do to improve?
  • Take urgent action to ensure that leaders and staff implement the principles underpinning effective safeguarding practice across the organisation. Ensure that the single central register is complete and routine checks are undertaken to assure its accuracy.
  • Ensure that all trainers use the information they have about what apprentices and learners already know and can do to plan a programme of learning that will allow them to make the progress of which they are capable.
  • Rapidly improve the planning and coordination of apprentices’ on- and off-the-job training so that it supports the development of their technical and vocational skills, and their progress towards achievement. Prioritise the early delivery of mathematics training for level 4 engineering apprentices.
  • Provide all apprentices with detailed and precise guidance on the requirements and expectations associated with end-point assessment and details of their individual target grades.
  • Ensure that leaders and managers have the information they need to evaluate performance and take prompt and effective action to make improvements. The board should set challenging targets for leaders to improve the provision as a matter of urgency.
  • Ensure that all learners and apprentices are provided with detailed, ongoing information, advice and guidance that help them to raise their aspirations and plan their next steps in learning and careers.
  • Managers and teachers should make sure that all adult learners benefit from access to a broad curriculum that is linked to their career needs and interests; managers should monitor the suitability and quality of this systematically.
