Following a recent Ofsted inspection in April 2018, Access Training have been confirmed as a ‘Good’ provider….again! A team of 4 inspectors carried out the inspection in April, observing training sessions, considering learner achievements and progress, reviewing key documents and meeting with leaners, employers, managers and staff.
Inspectors felt that ‘Senior leaders, managers and staff have sustained the good quality of education and training provided for apprentices and adult learners’.
They also highlighted that our ‘provision is responsive to the needs of employers and to regional priorities and demands’ and
we enable ‘apprentices to gain the skills required and valued by employers’
Apprenticeships are designed to help you learn on the job, developing your practical skills and abilities and helping you to become the best at what you do.
If you are already employed, we can help you to gain qualifications while you continue to earn, putting you in an excellent position to develop your career. We are happy to discuss this further with you and your employer.
If you are not currently employed and looking to start an Apprenticeship, we would interview you, then match your details with suitable vacancies that we have available, and put you forward for interview with our employers. You will be employed from day one in a real job and gain a range of qualifications.
