ADULT LEARNING INSPECTORATE
Earlier this year HSAS was subject to an intensive inspection carried out by the Government's Adult Learning Inspectorate, a Government body that was established to ensure quality and provision of training for adult learners.
The Inspectors sat in on our courses, interviewed employers who use our training services and delegates who have attended our courses.
The findings of the Inspection resulted in our company being awarded a grade 2 (Good) rating. This places HSAS in the top 25% of private company Adult Training providers.
The following have been extracted from the Inspection report:
Para 3 "The overall effectiveness of provision is good". Grade 2
Para 8 "Retention and Achievement on the Level 2 course is good".
Para 10 "Learners develop good skills and understanding. They speak enthusiastically of their ability to use in their workplace the techniques and knowledge they have gained on the course. The qualification gained by learners is transferable to other sectors of employment. It is recognized as a technical qualification in the advanced apprenticeship framework of a number of awarding bodies".
