After a thorough inspection by Ofsted back in February of this year, we are thrilled to announce that Ginger Nut Training has received a rating of “Good” across all areas of our apprenticeships.

We are really pleased with this outcome. It reflects our commitment to delivering high-quality training that truly makes a difference in our apprentices’ lives and careers. We’ve put together some highlights below, and you can find a link to the full report at the end.

A Culture of Learning and Growth

Our apprentices are at the heart of everything we do. They gain substantial new knowledge and skills, helping them not only to secure jobs but also to advance in their careers. It’s incredibly rewarding to see how they enjoy and value the personalised approach we take to their learning, seamlessly integrating their studies with work commitments and personal lives.

Strong Employer Relationships

We couldn’t have achieved this without our strong relationships with employers, who have expressed high satisfaction with the training their employees receive from us. It’s these partnerships that allow us to tailor our programmes effectively, ensuring we meet the needs of the industries we serve.

Tutors Who Make a Difference

Our tutors, who are both well-qualified and experienced, are truly ambitious for their apprentices. They encourage practical projects within workplaces, offering apprentices real-world experience while also supporting business objectives. This practical application of skills is crucial, allowing apprentices to not only learn but also contribute meaningfully to their workplaces.

Additional Qualifications and Career Development

A standout aspect of our programmes is the opportunity for apprentices to gain additional qualifications, such as the industry-standard CompTIA A+ for level 3 information communication technicians. These qualifications are a valuable asset, supporting apprentices’ career development and opening up new pathways for advancement.

Wellbeing and Safety

The wellbeing of our apprentices is paramount. They benefit from guidance on maintaining both physical and mental health and feel safe in their workplaces. Understanding the risks associated with their environments is a key component of our training, ensuring they are well-prepared for their professional journeys.

Tailored Training Plans

From the start of their apprenticeship, detailed training plans are put in place, aligning off-the-job activities with job roles perfectly. This meticulous planning ensures that learning is relevant, impactful, and directly beneficial to both apprentices and their employers.

Exceptional Teaching and Feedback

Our tutors excel in online teaching, utilizing a variety of platforms to make lessons interactive and engaging. The feedback provided to apprentices is detailed and constructive, allowing them to understand their strengths and areas for improvement. This approach has led to noticeable progress, with apprentices making good strides in their learning and work quality.

Celebrating Success

We are particularly proud of our apprentices with special educational needs, who achieve their qualifications and attain high grades, demonstrating the inclusivity and accessibility of our programmes.

Looking Forward

This “Good” rating from Ofsted solidifies our dedication, our collaborative spirit, and our unwavering commitment to providing opportunities for people to improve their lives. As we look to the future, we’re inspired to continue enhancing our apprenticeships, supporting our apprentices, and building even stronger partnerships with employers.

We invite you to join us in celebrating this achievement. Here’s to many more successes and to the bright futures we’re building together at Ginger Nut Training!
