NLTG retains Ofsted Good Provider rating

NLTG is proud to announce that after its recent inspection, it has maintained its Ofsted Good Provider rating!

Ofsted is responsible for inspecting all schools, colleges and training providers, such as NLTG to ensure the quality of training, education, support and guidance they provide learners is maintained.

The main purpose of the inspection was to evaluate sufficiently whether NLTG remained an Ofsted Good provider after their full inspection back in 2015. In particular they were looking whether the quality of education/training is good, whether safeguarding arrangements are effective, whether careers education and guidance are of a good quality and whether leaders, managers and governors have the capacity to drive continued improvement and manage change well.

The inspection was carried out over two days from the 26th – 27th November by four inspectors, Suzanne Wainwright (lead inspector), Robert Busby, Ken Fisher and Sarah McGrath.

The inspectors selected three areas of NLTG’s provision to look at in detail – Study Programme, Business Administration and Furniture. The lead inspector also looked at their Hospitality provision on day two of the inspection. In addition, the inspectors also looked at Leadership and Management, Safeguarding and Careers Advice and Guidance.

Over the areas looked at and the two days spent with staff and learners, the inspectors felt that North Lancs Training Group continues to be a good provider.
