Our main objective is to place the learner at the centre of everything we do ensuring that ultimate focus is geared towards delivering the best available staff resources and education material.
In order to measure if our core philosophy is implemented to its fullest potential, the training & development team record, gather and prepare a number of statistics highlighting how we compare with other training providers, national standards, what our greatest strengths are and if there are any areas in which we could improve.
The training & development team is proud to achieve above and beyond in all areas when compared against national benchmarks.
The training & development team continually attains outstanding achievement rates for all apprenticeship programmes. Our apprenticeship completion figures surpass nationwide pass rates.
Overall achievement for apprenticeships exceeds national rates. For 2017/18 completions, our overall achievement rate was 75% compared to the national average of 67.3%.
