The Seeds of Change has once again passed its annual audit by external auditors from City & Guilds with flying colours.

The Seeds of Change offers a number of City & Guilds courses to our learners, from Employability and Functional Skills (Maths and English) to Land-based studies. Our standards and pass rates are extremely high thanks to the dedication, patience, creativity and professionalism of our staff who deliver the courses and our commitment to quality. Last year our learners achieved an amazing 100% pass rate, and we hope that many will be successful this year and be rewarded for their hard work and perseverance.

The external audit ensures that we are running the programmes correctly, that the students feel supported by us during their time completing the course, and that the students’ paperwork is complete and correct. The external auditors also check that our internal auditors are correctly evaluating the work produced by learners and we are meeting the standards laid out by City & Guilds. Staff training is also scrutinised and that there are effective communication channels in place to share best practice and key information.

We are pleased to report that the auditor was extremely pleased with our standards and the way in which we deliver City & Guilds courses. He felt our sampling of students work and our internal communications are excellent. Most importantly he has no concerns with The Seeds of Change as a centre and is very happy for our centres to carry on providing the City & Guilds programmes.

Thanks to all our team for ensuring that we can continue to help learners to achieve qualifications which ultimately will make a huge difference to their future beyond education.
