Senior Leaders have established a nurturing environment

Posted on November 19, 2020

Ofsted have issued their report following a Monitoring Visit on 28th to 29th October 2020 which describes the caring and warm environment for our learners.

"Senior Leaders have established a nurturing environment at GEL.They establish close, professional relationships with apprentices, many of whom are in frontline, key-worker roles. Apprentices appreciate greatly the personal support and careers guidance they receive and describe senior leaders as being caring and invested in their success".

"GEL offers leadership and management apprenticeships that support employers to develop effective succession plans and establish change management programmes. Employers rightly value the new skills apprentices are gaining and the positive impact on their organisations"

"Trainers tailor the context of the teaching to the apprentices' workplace, which helps apprentices understand and apply the new knowledge that they have gained". "Trainers, apprentices and employers' complete useful reviews which help apprentices reflect on their progress".

The board's governors bring business and commercial expertise, as well as highly relevant knowledge of training and education. As a result, the advisory board is well equipped to provide effective challenge to senior leaders".

Kevin Holt, Managing Director thanked his team for the efforts they put in to ensuring a positive outcome from this Ofsted Visit. "I am looking forward to recruiting our next cohorts of management apprentices".
