Ofsted good practice example showing how Bassetlaw Training Agency offers individual programmes and qualifications to support employability.



Work experience and the development of employability skills are often seen as weaker areas for learners on Foundation learning programmes. This example explains how Bassetlaw Training Agency (BTA) has taken robust action to ensure that all learners are encouraged to develop these skills from the very first day of their programme. The curriculum successfully prepares learners for progression into workplace learning by offering individual programmes and qualifications to support employability skills.
