The Heritage Skills Academy has received its first Ofsted Report and was awarded two Outstanding scores and two Good, with an Overall Effectiveness of Good.

The HSA was given Outstanding marks for Behaviour and Attitude, and Personal Development. It was also deemed Good in the quality of its education, and Leadership and Management.

In its report, Ofsted noted: ‘Apprentices are exceptionally motivated and display very positive attitudes to both their training and their job roles.

‘Leaders and managers have a clear and purposeful rationale for the apprenticeship they offer, which is to provide high quality training to replace the ageing workforce in the classic, vintage and heritage vehicle industry. They have established strong links with employers and organisations in the industry to plan and teach a curriculum which is relevant to their needs.’

There are 141 apprentices currently being trained, 112 on the mechanical option and 29 apprentices on the coachworks course.
