The report, The impact of Train to Gain on skills in employment, published today by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted), evaluates training given to more than 13,000 employees.
The report concludes that the Train to Gain programme is successful in giving employees the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications and improving their motivation in the workplace.
However, inspections reveal that employers have been slow to take advantage of funding, while some employees aren’t always getting the skills development they need.
If you are looking for the Tellus3 Reports by local authority, you can find them on the link below. Due to a technical fault, you cannot currently find them in the inspection reports section alongside those reports from previous years.
Ofsted’s vision is to raise standards and improve lives. This consultation seeks views on proposals for assessing children’s services and Ofsted’s inspection of services for children in care and safeguarding as part of the new Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA).
On 1 September 2008, tens of thousands of childcare providers moved to new registers: the Early Years and Childcare Registers. With a new, single framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) also being introduced, there’s a lot happening in the sector. Visit the EYFS page on the link below to find out more.
We inspect and regulate to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
The new Ofsted brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners, in England. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote our success as a country.
Early Years: Leading to Excellence
