Waverley Borough Council’s Waverley Training Services (WTS) are delighted to announce the outcome of their recent Ofsted inspection.
Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills, is the independent regulatory body in England that inspects and regulates educational institutions to ensure high standards of education. They carried out an inspection of Waverly Training Services and judged the provision to be Good (Grade 2) across all aspects of the inspection framework.
Ofsted commended Waverley Training Services for the support offered to apprentices and learners including the carefully tailored individual online sessions that helped develop useful new skills and highlighted how learners on study programmes benefited from staff’s adaptable approach to their support needs.
In addition, Ofsted commented on the thoughtfully planned programmes which allow learners and apprentices to build confidence and then apply the knowledge and skills in the workplace.
Councillor Liz Townsend BEM, Waverley Borough Council Portfolio Holder for Planning and Economic Development, said:
“As Chair of Governors, I would like to extend my wholehearted congratulations to the WTS team for filling such a vital gap in education and learning, and for doing it so well. The inspection highlighted the work of our motivated staff who are passionate about helping learners and apprentices achieve their best and prepare them well for the next stage in their lives. It also highlights the council’s ongoing commitment to provide high-quality training opportunities in Waverley.”
WTS deliver work-based learning qualifications, apprenticeships, functional skills, and employability skills to a range of learners. For further information, visit Waverley Borough Council - About Waverley Training Services
