Studying with NITAL - Info for Parents & Guardians

Parents & Guardians

NITAL’s learners consistently achieve at rates well above the national average and have done so for a number of years, not only in the county of Northamptonshire but also nationally.

Having achieved a Grade 2 (Good) Ofsted in December 2016, we continue to offer a level of service unrivalled in the engineering and manufacturing training provision in Northamptonshire. Our programme delivery is robust, high quality and monitored for it's effectiveness .

All students studying with NITAL are given the best opportunity to succeed through strong pastoral support, development at the academy; in group sizes of no more than 15, thorough impartial advice and guidance and regular contact with occupationally skilled and competent delivery staff. For those on apprenticeships their instructor/trainer will visit them every 4 to 6 weeks in company.

It is essential we understand the starting levels of our candidates to ensure we match them to the most relevant pathways, either as an apprentice or on our full time engineering programme.

All parents and guardians are welcome to visit the training centre to talk to staff and clarify how their son/daughter are progressing.

What can we offer parents & guardians?

We hold an annual awards day where we invite member companies, apprentices and their parents/guardians, to celebrate their success and the companies they work for.

We also hold Open Evenings on a regular basis in order to show parents/guardians around the academy, to see our facilities and to meet engineering tutors and other members of staff who will be able to answer any questions. 

Our office opening hours are Monday Thursday 8:30am - 4:30pm and Friday 8:30am - 4:00pm please contact us if you have any questions and would like to speak to a member of staff. You can also message us on social media as this is checked on a regular basis.
