Hawk Training is one of the first members of The Chartered Institution.
The Chartered Institution for Further Education (FE Charter) is a body for the higher performing FE colleges and training providers in the UK. Its mission will be to bring together the best training providers across the sector and promote, recognise and celebrate their professionalism and success. Hawk Training was the first independent training provider to join the Institution.
Following inspection in 2013, Hawk Training was awarded Grade 1 ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Hawk was the first independent learning provider in the country to achieve a Grade 1 under the then Common Inspection Framework. The report recognised that Hawk provides outstanding training for learners and employers and included key findings on all areas, including recruitment of apprentices, quality of delivery, and effectiveness of management.
Extracts from the Ofsted Published Report 2013:
‘The recruitment of learners is very effective and individual programme planning carefully matches learners to employment opportunities.’
‘Highly skilled and enthusiastic staff serves as outstanding role models for learners.’
‘A wide range of high quality learning resources are utilised, which are easily accessible and used very effectively by learners to support their development.’
‘Employers work in partnership to provide excellent learning opportunities and offer additional challenges through bespoke projects or by extending learners’ responsibilities.’
‘Leadership and management are outstanding, leading to significant improvements in the quality of provision.’
Hawk Training currently holds the Investors in People Gold Award. Only 7% of UK organisations meet the Gold standard, which recognises the commitment shown to the career development of all employees.
In 2013, Hawk Training was named London Provider of the Year by the London Work Based Learning Alliance. The ceremony took place in December at the House of Commons with Andrew Jones (MP), the then Apprenticeship Ambassador to Parliament.
