ACE Training are Outstanding for Learners say Ofsted

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve just achieved a Grade 2 overall Ofsted grading, with an amazing Grade 1 outstanding for learners’ outcomes.

Success rates for learners were marked as outstanding – 96% of learners complete their outcomes within the time set, this is a proportion that is significantly above the national average.

As you know, we at ACE train 16-24 year olds in trade courses and Apprenticeships, specialising in Brickwork and Site Carpentry. Many of our learners come straight from school but We also have great success with NEET (not in employment, education or training) learners and long term unemployed candidates.

ACE was praised for the high quality of teaching in functional skills, and practical teaching in the workshops, as well as excellent academic and pastoral support.

Nearly all learners were seen to make very rapid progress in learning and in the workplace. On completion of their qualifications many learners were seen to continue in employment, gain promotion and progress onto Advanced Apprenticeships here at ACE Training.

Ofsted found that:

“Many who have underachieved in school quickly gain qualifications in English and Maths and apply these skills well in the workplace.”

The apprentice training centre was commended for its strong leadership, clear focus on learners’ success, and the high expectations of both learners and staff.

ACE’s Operations Director, Barry Crane said:

“We are extremely proud of this Ofsted report – to have achieved an outstanding in our outcomes is fantastic. We work hard to give young people a supportive and realistic working environment, and we are hoping for even better results in the future.”
