Top Ofsted report for training firm

A South Normanton training provider, which specialises in apprenticeships, has been awarded its best ever Ofsted rating.

Positive Outcomes, of The Village Business Park, has received praise for the success of its strategy to boost the number of 16 to 18-year-old apprentices.

The firm, which is one of the top ten training providers in the country, has been awarded Grade Two ‘good’ status and, in particular, the report highlighted efforts to recruit more teenage apprentices, noting it had implemented a strategy to increase the number.

Chris Longmate, managing director, said: “It’s a massive achievement, even more so under the new Ofsted framework.”
