OFSTED Inspection

At our last OFSTED inspection in March 2014, we were awarded “Good” overall and for all aspects of teaching and learning, confirming the high standard of education we provide for our learners.

The inspection report highlighted: "The training, learning and assessment provided by the enthusiastic, skilled and experienced staff is good. Staff have a wealth of industrial experience, which they apply beneficially to the learners’ programmes. "

It also commented: "Resources are exceptionally good. This includes the realistic work environments fitted with industry standard equipment, the well-equipped classrooms and workshops and the high-quality information and communication technology used to support teaching and learning."

“Learners develop a wide variety of vocational, employability, personal and functional skills. These prepare them well for the next stage of their training or employment.”

“Mantra has a strong focus on employability in the logistics sector and convinces employers of the return on investment achieved by having appropriately trained staff. It promotes the advantage of taking on staff from its employability programmes or of further training for existing staff.”
