ONE-DAY WORK-RELATED LEARING AUDITS

Our on-site audit covers all areas required for an ‘outstanding work-related provision’. The audit is based on a framework which has been developed from our work with over 500 schools and colleges, covering 5 key themes:

  1. Strategy: For work-related learning, including written plans and KPIs.
  2. Employer Engagement: The employers and community organisations that support your programme.
  3. Learner Activity: The in-class and extra-curricular learning that your learners participate in to develop their work skills.
  4. Work Experience: The real-world experiences your learners have of the workplace. This can include placements, work shadowing and insight days.
  5. Evaluation: Measuring the impact of your provision and presenting data to Ofsted.

During the audit, we will speak to all key stakeholders before presenting a full report and action plan to support the development of outstanding Work-Related Learning in your school.
