2023 Ofsted Inspection Findings

Some Inspector Judgements…

Within the inspection, the inspectors made the following judgements about our apprenticeship delivery:

“Staff carry out a thorough recruitment process, involving the apprentice and employer, to establish what apprentices already know and can do. Tutors work closely with apprentices and their employers to plan and skilfully build a curriculum that meets the needs of each apprentice and links on- and off-the-job training effectively. As a result, apprentices rapidly become highly effective at work and make good progress through their apprenticeship.”

2023 Ofsted Inspection Findings

Some More Inspector Judgements…

“Tutors structure the curriculum in a logical way to enable apprentices to gain secure knowledge, skills and behaviours. Apprentices begin by studying basic topics, such as how programming language works and website structure, and then apply their new knowledge and skills when performing more complex tasks, such as creating promotional advertisements and using software to monitor their effectiveness. They use their new knowledge and skills effectively in the workplace. For example, they carry out impactful and cost-effective digital marketing campaigns, which makes a significant contribution to their organisation’s profitability.”

SF Media – Digital Marketer Apprentice

What our clients
have to say

Velocity Academy sourced a fantastic Apprentice Developer on our behalf and we couldn’t have been happier with the service. Regular check-ins, guidance and support from the start and genuine care were put into the recruitment process from Velocity, which meant they came up trumps with a cracking candidate. Elliott has been our contact throughout and he’s been outstanding. Thanks Velocity!

GivEnergy – Application Support Lead Apprentice

Digital Marketing Apprenticeship

What our clients
have to say

I’m enjoying my Digital Marketing apprenticeship. I’ve learned so many skills about online marketing. One of the key things I’ve learned is how to build and customize websites using HTML and CSS. I’ve also learned about Google indexing and how to optimize websites to improve their search engine rankings. I’m happy to continue building on the skills I’ve learned so far.

Zaid – Digital Marketing Apprentice

What our clients
have to say

Amazed at how helpful and thorough Velocity have been. Have been working with Ebony at Velocity and she has been excellent. Always quick to respond with just the information I need. Super helpful in course selection, helping me complete the government forms, posting an advert, finding candidates, carrying out 1st round interviews, then with the follow up.

Velocity has made finding someone and hiring them a breeze, made my life a lot less stressed by taking the HR load off me.
If it hadn’t been for Ebony & Velocity we wouldn’t have an apprentice starting with us. She is a credit to the company and look forward to working with her throughout the apprenticeship. Simply excellent.

JC Applications – Application Support Lead Apprentice

What our clients
have to say

I had Andrew (Andy) as my tutor and I can not express how much I wouldn’t have got this qualification without his perseverance , patience and faith in me. He was willing to help no matter how many times he had gone through the same thing, and always made time. He never let me drop out anytime I was demotivated and gave me 1-1 sessions as well as forwarded me the online classes whenever I felt like I was hitting the rocks and wanted to give up. It took me a little longer than expected but if I didn’t have the constant push and support from Andy I wouldn’t have made it this far. The work ethic and breakdown in explaining things is beyond remarkable. Give this man a trophy! Overall I’d do it all over again and no other place I’d recommend to everyone. (Dying inside because I enjoyed it and it’s come to an end)
