Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.



Ofsted recognised EMBS as a Good Provider in 2013 because:

Learners make very good progress and gain self-confidence.

Retention rates are high.

Learners receive particularly effective personal support, and benefit from good teaching that motivates and inspires them to achieve their potential.

Leaders create and successfully embed a shared vision to raise learners’ aspirations and to create a culture of high expectations that encourages them to succeed.

EMBS has developed very effective partnerships to provide clear progression routes to further and higher education.

The highly effective engagement of the ethnically diverse local community and the learners within the organisation shape and inform the development of the provision.
