Proud to be GOOD
We are delighted to share our most recent OFSTED inspection report with you. With an overall effectiveness rating of "Good" and outstanding performance in key areas such as the quality of education, behavior and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management, education programs for young people, adult learning programs, and apprenticeships, we are dedicated to empowering learners of all ages. Our continuous improvement journey ensures that your educational experience with us is second to none.
What is it like…
“Learners and apprentices demonstrate vastly increased levels of knowledge and skills as a result of their studies.”
“Tutors work particularly well with employers to ensure that they teach topics that match closely to apprentices’ development at work.”
“Adult learners, the majority of whom have not studied for many years, value the positive impact of tutor feedback on their confidence levels.”
“Learners and apprentices develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to make progress in their careers.”
“Learners and apprentices rightly feel safe during their studies. They identify a positive and supportive culture at CT Skills.”
“Tutors are subject specialists with highly relevant industry experience. They plan the courses they teach well.”
“Tutors meet the specific needs of learners and apprentices well. For example, where they identify that apprentices would benefit from more direct experience of a topic at work, they arrange for apprentices to shadow relevant colleagues.”
“Senior leaders have high aspirations for learners and apprentices. They make appropriate and timely changes to the curriculum, which ensures that they continue to offer courses that are most useful to learners and apprentices.”
