OFSTED - It's good to be Good

Steadfast Training recently underwent a 2 day OFSTED inspection, to which we successfully secured our previous ‘Good’ grade 2.

The official Ofsted report notes that Steadfast Training Ltd has continued to focus on high-quality apprenticeships and providing good training and development for our apprentices.

"Since the previous inspection, directors and senior managers have continued to focus on high-quality apprenticeships in health and social care... You provide good training and development for your apprentices that meets local and regional business needs through the productive links you continue to develop."

The report also highlights that Steadfast Training Ltd has established effective Safeguarding arrangements and have implemented our obligations under the ‘Prevent’ duty well

"Directors and managers have taken effective action to ensure that safeguarding arrangements keep learners safe in the classroom and in the workplace"

"Managers have implemented their obligations under the ‘Prevent’ duty well, with effective and regularly updated staff training. The majority of learners and apprentices can articulate clearly their understanding of these issues and values. They can explain the risks of radicalisation and know how to keep themselves safe from the dangers of extremism and are aware of how to stay safe when using the internet or social media."

The inspection found that Steadfast apprentices make good progress in developing knowledge and skills that are relevant in their workplace, Employers are involved well in planning learning programmes that meet business needs and apprentices’ interests, most apprentices develop good work-related skills and become more confident in their job role, and Assessors support learners well to pass their functional skills tests in English and mathematics.
