Milltech Ltd, which provides training as well as motor industry, business administration, management, and sales and customer service apprenticeships, has adopted Mesma software to be better prepared for Ofsted inspections and help achieve a Grade 1 mark.
 
The move – part of a new self-assessment and improvement planning system to support future evaluative activities – supports a framework that will secure Milltech’s future quality assurance requirements.
 
Using the software will improve Milltech’s ability to undertake self-assessment, secure greater managerial control and deliver efficiencies to time intensive processes.
 
Mesma is an adaptable, versatile and cost effective web-based resource, which enables important areas of the self-assessment process and the associated improvement plan activities to be allocated to authorised people within a training environment. Its key purpose is to drive accountability to improve educational provision for students and learners.
 
Operations manager Mark Askew said: “Mesma has already had a significant impact on our quality improvement planning and self-assessment, ensuring we will be fully prepared for Ofsted.
 
“We can keep a better record of where we are and focus on developments that directly impact on people right across the organisation. We will be prepared for our next inspection – greater transparency enables us to see areas for improvement and why.
 
“The management team benefit from shared ownership of the system, easily seeing the critical information about achievement and improvements right across the business at the press of a button.
 
“This helps to make quicker and better informed decisions about the business as we move forward in the light of the recent Ofsted changes.”
 
Mesma was set-up in response to changes implemented by education watchdog Ofsted, which led to schools, colleges and independent providers receiving reduced notice of inspection. It is owned and operated by three directors – Neil Donkin, Carole Loader and Louise Doyle – who between them have more than 30 years experience in business and working in with the education sector.
