apprentify, Ofsted Outstanding and the Juice Academy logo
The Juice Academy is extremely proud to announce that its partner in apprenticeships, Apprentify, has secured an Outstanding rating in its first ever full Ofsted inspection, placing it in the top 1.6% per cent of independent learning providers in the country.
With an 86% distinction rate and nearly 90% employer and apprentice satisfaction score, Apprentify has been recognised for supporting learners to achieve excellent progress in their studies and subsequent job roles, creating highly valued members of the workplace.
The Juice Academy is Apprentify’s leading partner, delivering the Content Creator Level 3 and has been working with the company since 2019.
Jonathan Fitchew, Group CEO, Apprentify group, said: “This is The Juice Academy’s achievement too! We could not have done it without their amazing team and programme and our superb partnership.”
Of particular note in Ofsted’s feedback, was that apprentices develop the confidence to present and communicate within business, and receive additional learning activities – including networking, conferences and masterclasses – to meet the specific needs of their employers. The courses create ‘enthusiastic and motivated’ students and encourage apprentices to develop a ‘lifelong love of learning’, according to the report.
Ofsted inspectors carried out a deep dive on The Juice Academy as part of Apprentify’s overall inspection, contributing to the final outstanding grade. Specific to The Juice Academy, the Ofsted assessors were impressed by:
- The Academy’s tutors’ up to date knowledge due to working in industry
- The enrichment opportunities available to the apprentices and wider learning workshops
- The apprentices being able to access high quality resources and e-learning
“As soon as we chose Apprentify as our new partner in 2019, we knew it was the right decision,” said The Academy’s founder and chair, Sandy Lindsay MBE. “Their passion for apprenticeships, their attention to detail and their desire to be constantly developing and moving programmes forward were exactly what we were looking for in a new partner.
“The Juice Academy’s USP is that all training is delivered by practising industry specialists and, when you couple this expertise with Apprentify’s deep expertise in the world of apprenticeship delivery, it’s not surprising that something this special has happened.
