The positive outcome of the Ofsted report adds to Wincanton’s recent hat-trick of wins at the HR Excellence Awards as part of a wider effort of transformation for the company, during which the business is focusing on the retention and attraction of key talent and skills.
Wincanton provides a training scheme to its employees whereby participants can receive a vocational qualification, funded by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), in warehousing and transportation. The programme has been designed to encourage drivers to increase their skills and knowledge around health, safety and working practises to not only encourage progression within Wincanton, but to support the success of the business overall.
The company was rated ‘good’ across all Ofsted’s categories which include; effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare and outcomes for learners.
Adrian Coleman, CEO of Wincanton said:
“We are thrilled to have been rated ‘good’ by Ofsted for our training scheme. Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we have encouraged the participation in this training scheme to help not only with their own personal development but their professional development within Wincanton as well.”
