Ofsted Comments on London Metropolitan College
Our Industry Expertise
“LMC is part of a larger organisation specialising in project management. Apprentices benefit from this wider group specialism in terms of very up to date sector exposure and expertise of staff. The knowledge, skills and behaviours apprentices develop are new and substantial.”
Employer and learner benefits
“Leaders, managers and tutors have an excellent knowledge and understanding of their sector. They have very productive relationships with a range of employers, including public and private sector organisations”.
“Employers value the clarity of communication, the responsiveness of the team but, in particular, they value the high-quality training that their apprentices benefit from.”
“Employers provide many examples of how apprentices contribute to their business from an early stage of their apprenticeship.”
Our commitment to the continuous delivery of high quality learning programs
“Apprentices use ‘live’ projects proposed by their employers during their on and off the job training. They explore and extend their knowledge and skills in their off the job training and use this learning to enhance the project.”
“Apprentices’ managers provide highly effective support for them so that they can further hone their new skills. For example, apprentices deepen their understanding of financial management concepts in their workplace by leading on periodic finance reviews for their companies.”
Equip our students with core knowledge & skills
“Apprentices are very carefully recruited and benefit from extremely good advice and guidance throughout their studies. They develop new knowledge and skills rapidly through very good quality on and off the job training.”
“Apprentices are clear about their career plans. They articulate clearly the benefits of the transferable skills that they are developing that will help them in whatever sector they want to work in the future.”
Delivering high quality learning programs
“Leaders have recruited staff who are very well qualified and experienced. Tutors have a wealth of vocational and academic experience that they use to teach the project management apprenticeships to a very high standard. Leaders have made judicious investments in staffing to ensure that tutors continue to develop their pedagogical skills as well as providing ample professional updating opportunities”
