Congratulations to Govia Thameslink Railways for receiving an official stamp of approval from Ofsted for its Railway’s inclusive apprenticeship scheme as a result of a New Provider Monitoring Visit.
The UK’s largest rail operator, on track to hire 200 apprentices in 2021, recently hosted Ofsted monitoring visits at its Selhurst depot in South London.
Inspectors found the rail operator, which runs Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern services, is delivering a “thoughtfully structured” curriculum and sets ambitious standards for its new recruits. Apprentices enjoy their training and gradually build their skills, knowledge and behaviours, according to Ofsted’s report. The regulator also cited the motivational environment created by GTR’s trainers to help apprentices achieve their goals.
Well done Govia Thameslink Railways!
