James assisted my organisation through the ROTO process and ensured that we had a successful result and gained entry onto the register. James provided a first class service and took the majority of the stress off my shoulders, I just left him to it. He also organised the recent refresh of our details on ROTO successfully.


Sometimes we get stuck in the day to day operations of our business and we don’t take the time to take a step back and evaluate where we are and where we are going. Our consultants can support your organisation to move on to the next level through detailed business planning and support.

Quality of apprenticeships and skills training inquiry launched

The Education Committee launches inquiry into the quality of apprenticeships and skills training.

Purpose of the inquiry

While many independent training providers and further education colleges are providing excellent training, too much provision is poor. For example, Ofsted last year reported that 37% of apprenticeship providers were less than good.

The inquiry examines whether employers, learners and tax payers are getting sufficient value for the time and money invested in training, and whether more needs to be done to detect poor-quality provision.

The inquiry  also looks to uncover barriers faced by the socially disadvantaged in accessing skills training and consider how Government funding can be used to remove these barriers.
