We were rated "good" by Her Majesty’s Ofsted Inspectors in August 2018.

Inspectors were particularly impressed with the ‘unwavering’ commitment of leaders and managers and the ‘exceptional facilities and resources’ at our dedicated technical training centre, which opened at Bolton Wastewater Treatment Works in 2015.
