Why Use Access?

Quality, Reliability & Customer Care…

Following our 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’
Our performance is also measured by the following:
