what ofsted found
What Ofsted Found
  • “the range and availability of specialist training for staff were variable”
  • “areas for improvement included poorly planned support, low expectations of learners and too much focus on achievement of units, rather than generic goals such as social skills that  would prepare learners for their future destinations.
  • “All the providers visited were making good use of networks and partnerships to improve their specialist capacity to support learners with a wide range of needs”
