Achieving personal career goals often relies on good quality, appropriate training, either on the job or via learning centres. Halifax Opportunities Trust directly delivers and commissions the delivery of a range of certificated and non-certificated training programmes including employment related short courses, professional development support, apprenticeships and programmes for those working in the childcare profession.

Some of the highlights of this year have been receiving positive feedback from a monitoring visit by OFSTED in July 2018 which noted ‘much progress that leaders have made in ensuring that the provider is meeting all the requirements of successful apprenticeship provision.’ The report also complimented the ‘progress leaders and managers have made in ensuring that apprentices benefit from high quality training that leads to positive outcomes for apprentices’.

We were also delighted to retain our Matrix standard for the 7th year in a row. The Matrix Standard is a unique quality standard for organisations to assess and measure their advice and support services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
