There is a culture at CT Skills of passion and enthusiasm to make our learners succeed.

CT Skills most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2016 and were graded as good across all areas of the business.

The report highlighted how effectively we are making a difference to our learners’ lives and a noticeable impact to our employers businesses through our routes to employment, apprenticeship and traineeship programmes.

Our inspectors were impressed by both the impact our apprenticeship training has on the employers we work with, “skill development for apprentices is good, they make valuable contributions to the work of their employers through the application of their newly acquired skills and knowledge within the workplace” and the input they have in shaping the content “employers support the planning and delivery of learning and are actively engaged in curriculum design and delivery and help to ensure that learners have good opportunities to develop their skills in the workplace.”

They also noted the impact our training has on all our learners, “Learners enjoy their training, make good progress and develop their personal, social and employability skills well – they are shown a different world.” 

No wonder 93% would recommend us to friends and family.

Other key achievements include;

  • There is a coherent curriculum and high-quality training that effectively addresses local priority skills needs and provides learners with good progression routes.
  • Learners are well behaved, treat each other with mutual respect and feel safe while at the training centres or workplace.
  • Senior managers and governors use robust performance management to improve rapidly the quality of delivery and outcomes for learners. There is a culture at CT Skills of passion and enthusiasm to make our learners succeed.

The report is available on the Ofsted website (view the full report here) and not only demonstrates the achievements to date, it also supports their ambitious growth plans.
