“A straight set of grade 2s under the new CIF, with a 6-year gap since our last Ofsted inspection”

Debbie Gardiner, CEO (Aug 2016)

Ofsted Inspection

The purpose of an Ofsted Inspection is to measure the effectiveness of schools, colleges and private training providers by judging them against a clear set of outcomes;

  • Effectiveness of leadership and management
  • Quality of teaching learning and assessment
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for learners

Overall - strengths 

Providers will be graded as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate. The judgement grade can be a really useful guide for employers and learners when trying to select the best training provider to help them gain a qualification. Qube Learning received a full four-day inspection from Ofsted in June 2016, and are delighted to share the following feedback with you:

  • Managers and all staff have high expectations of their learners
  • The vast majority of learners successfully complete their learning programmes and improve the level of their qualifications in English and mathematics
  • Managers support partner subcontractors very well to help ensure learners achieve
  • Partners benefit from the frequent opportunities to share and develop good practice
  • Learners develop their English and mathematics skills very well as Learning & Development Consultants integrate well-planned activities into learning sessions
  • Managers and Learning & Development Consultants work very well with a wide range of employers to ensure learners benefit from good-quality work place training tailored to their needs
  • Learners rapidly develop very high levels of maturity, confidence and vocational skills because of high-quality practical teaching
  • Learners with significant barriers to learning are supported very well to progress in employment or gain higher-level qualifications
  • Managers and staff share good practice well and develop high-quality learning resources which enhance and enliven training sessions
