Sunderland training centre gets good marks from Ofsted

Have your say

A TRAINING centre has been rated as good by Ofsted chiefs.

Inspectors carried out a learning and skills inspection at Sunderland Engineering Training Association (Seta), based in Washington.

The report said: “Outcomes for apprentices are good for the vast majority, who are successful within their planned time scales.

“Apprentices develop a high level skill, confidence and competence in a range of engineering applications. Teaching, learning and assessment are good.

“Training is well planned, structured, interesting and engages the apprentices to improve their knowledge and understanding, and progress.”

To improve, Seta needs to develop use of the monitoring and tracking systems, improve the standard of teaching and learning in weaker sessions and ensure portfolio assessment is sufficiently detailed.
