GATESHEAD’S MESMA DRIVES SUCCESS AT NATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE TRAINING PROVIDER

Technology provided by Gateshead education software specialists Mesma has halved the time taken to complete self-assessment reviews at a national provider of apprenticeships to the automotive sector.

Skillnet Limited, which trains over 4,000 people a year for DAF, Ford, Scania and McLaren Automotive has invested in Mesma in a move that’s delivered measurable improvements in administration and management reporting.

The training provider has seen the time taken to complete a self-assessment review cut in two – down from three weeks to seven days – while managers’ benefit from greater clarity around improvement planning process and measurement.

Ryan Palmer, quality director at Skillnet, said Mesma’s technology has been ‘invaluable’ in acquiring a ‘Good’ Ofsted grade following an inspection.

He said: “Ofsted inspectors praised the quality of our SAR, in particular the clarity and precision it offered to the inspection team. This due in considerable part to using Mesma, which offered inspectors relevant, succinct information at the touch of a button.”

He said:“Mesma gives us an advantage, providing a flexible and affordable resource that puts us in control of critical processes.

“It engages the team, connecting them better than paper-based systems. This allows people across our network to benefit from shared ownership of the system and access the information at the press of a button.

“In turn, this helps to make quicker and better informed decisions about the business as we move forward to improve the quality of our activities.”

In short, Mesma has proven to be a shrewd investment for Skillnet. Easy to use, well designed and supported with good software, it has helped Skillnet benchmark against the Ofsted CIF – quality improvement assessment and measurement has been transformed into a more manageable, clearer daily process.

Louise Doyle, Mesma director, said: “It’s exciting for us to continue to expand our customer base, particularly among independent training providers. Our technology helps companies like Skillnet improve their quality assurance and deliver greater control of critical functions.”

Specialists in quality assurance within the education and skills sector, Mesma works with a range of providers including colleges, schools, training providers, and employer providers. It uses its experience in education to develop an effective approach to self-assessment and help clients build robust improvement plans that drive beneficial change.   It also offers consultancy services to help review, implement and improve quality assurance systems.
