In August 2022, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Apprenticeship training provision was inspected by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (OFSTED). The final inspection report confirmed the Trust received a ‘Good’ overall rating.
This rating was formed by the inspectors collecting a wide range of evidence to inform judgements, including attending learning sessions, analysing learners work, seeking the views of learners, staff and other stakeholders, and examining the Trust’s documentation and records.
The final result areas included:
Overall effectiveness: Good
The quality of education: Good
Behaviour and attitudes: Outstanding
Personal development: Good
Leadership and management: Good
This is an excellent outcome for our first inspection and recognises the high quality of the apprenticeship training we provide. Amongst a range of positives, inspectors found that:
“Apprentices are highly motivated and enthusiastic about their programmes and demonstrate excellent attitudes to their learning. Apprentices are committed to their training to improve their knowledge, skills and behaviours for their patients and for their future roles within the healthcare sector.”
Once again, we would like to thank all colleagues, managers and those involved with apprentice training provision for this positive outcome.
