Following the recent Ofsted inspection in November 2017, we are excited to announce that Appris have achieved an overall grade of Good. In addition to this, we were awarded Outstanding for Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare.
Kenny Stoddart, Operations Director stated “We are absolutely delighted with the findings of the recent Ofsted inspection. The report has recognised the high level of engineering skills our apprentices achieve and how this is appreciated by employers.
The positive wording of the report, such as ‘Staff reinforce rigorously high professional standards.’ and ‘Apprentices and learners display exemplary attitudes and behaviours which their employers value highly.’ is especially pleasing in relation to our Outstanding grade for Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare.
Work has already started on improving the areas of the provision highlighted in the report and the journey towards outstanding at our next inspection is well underway.”
