Adult training service in Luton slated by Ofsted


An adult training service in Luton has been slated in its latest Ofsted inspection across all areas.

Training 4 U Services UK, based in Trinity Road, provides level 3 and 4 courses in health and social care, beauty therapy, teaching assistance and business administration.

The business works in partnership with providers, Education Partnership UK and The Beauty Academy and it is also a subcontractor for Cambridge Regional College.

The Ofsted inspection rated Training 4 U Services UK as ‘inadequate’ in all areas, with poor teaching, poor attendance and poor outcomes for the adult students taking part.

The report stated: “Leaders do not have high expectations of their staff and learners.

“Teachers do not help learners improve their English and mathematical skills. They do not correct learners’ spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.

“In a few instances, teachers’ amendments of learners’ work are incorrect.”

The report also stated that the courses failed to educate learners about British values.

“Learners do not know how to protect themselves from the risks associated with radicalisation and extremism.

“Most learners cannot articulate any knowledge about topics such as online safety, forms of abuse, grooming or bullying.”

It added: “Too many learners who complete or leave their qualifications remain unemployed. Only a few progress to a higher level of learning or secured employment.”

In response to the report, the CEO of Training 4 U Services UK Ltd, Mohammed Islam said: “The report provision is for our advanced learner loan’s [sic].

“The report is mainly for our Bradford partner (Education Partnership UK) & Luton partner The Beauty Academy who deliver L3 & L4. We have put in measures to take the learners over and ensure they achieve.

“Once the learners have achieved we plan not to work with these partners.”
