Below is a selection of comments from the feedback we received in our latest Ofsted report in July 2016. Following this report our grading remains ‘Good’.

The full report can be read online here.

“You have made a substantial investment in learning resources by establishing a good-quality engineering workshop. Learners learn using industry-standard CNC machines and develop high-end engineering skills such as in CAD/CAM that are valued by businesses.”

“Programmes match the needs of the learners and employers exceptionally well. Staff go ‘the extra mile’ to understand the business of the employers and update their professional knowledge and skills, so that they can customise the apprenticeship frameworks.”

“With its origins in the chambers of commerce, PTP is an organisation that is well known to local employers. Managers keep a very close eye on developments in the locality and provide positive solutions to employers’ problems and needs. Staff listen to employers and learners keenly, and make improvements to the training quickly.”

“A dedicated business development team works very closely with a broad range of employers to develop apprenticeships and sector-based work academies (SBWA), supplying well-trained candidates for their business. For example, leaders and managers have enabled unemployed adults with significant personal barriers to secure jobs.”

“You have maintained the high levels of achievement of apprenticeship frameworks by learners in spite of a rapid increase in learner numbers to around 1,485 in the current year. The number of 16–18-year-old apprentices has doubled – a tribute to the success of the ‘search and select’ team in forming strategic alliances with schools. You have worked very closely with schools to promote apprenticeships, often making them aware of how apprenticeship training contributes to school performance tables. As a result, a much higher number of school-leavers are choosing to take up an apprenticeship.”

“Senior managers and staff ensure that learners are taught in a safe environment. As a result, learners feel safe. You have strengthened safeguarding arrangements since the previous inspection, successfully incorporating changes such as the ‘Prevent’ duty and protection from extremism and radicalisation.”

“Staff gain good levels of knowledge on safeguarding matters through attending thought-provoking training on an ongoing basis. Designated officers have established productive relationships with local authorities and services, including the local police forces. They use these strong links to seek advice and guidance, access training and make referrals.”
