UK Skills produce Case Study of award-winning Anchor House

15th October 2010

Following on from Anchor House's triumphant win at the National Training Awards this week, a case study of both Anchor House and our Head of Education and Training Aggrie Chikiwa was produced by UK Skills.

Here is a segment of the case study, contributed by Learning and Skills Solutions Ltd, a partner of Anchor House:

Sue Bouckley, Director at training company Learning and Skills Solutions Ltd, which works with Anchor House, comments, "Anchor House has developed a learning environment for both residents and the wider community that is achieving major successes both in training and educational qualifications and their outcomes are of the highest order. Working with partners they have managed to establish an integrated training environment with a coherent set of pathways for some of the most marginalised in society."

She adds, "We never cease to be amazed by their attitude, approach and results. The site has achieved accreditations from City and Guilds, Prometric accreditation for CSCS, successful Ofsted inspections for both academic and vocational studies, they have recently expanded into art, music and social cohesion training, and shortly e-learning will be introduced. As a community based training facility we haven’t seen anything like it."
