An engineering training organisation which was last month judged 'inadequate' by Ofsted has been told it is making 'reasonable progress' following an unannounced monitoring visit.
The inspectors had criticised East Anglian Group for Industrial Training (Eagit), near Norwich Airport, for not carrying out background checks on four new staff members, two of whom had unsupervised contact with 14-16 year olds.
A report published yesterday, following a return visit on July 22, said: 'Managers have acted quickly to ensure the four members of staff who had not previously received appropriate Disclosure and Barring Service checks now have them. In addition, managers are in the process of rewriting the organisation's recruitment policy, which now states that no member of staff can begin employment without first having received a satisfactory DBS check.'
