The Myths About Ofsted
Posted: May 14, 2018
OFSTED, just their name is enough to make your blood run cold if you’re managing a childcare setting, I mean, you’ve got enough on without Ofsted coming and poking their nose in, disrupting your children and scaring your staff to tears, right? Well maybe it isn’t all that bad.
Okay, joking aside, inspectors often encounter a lot of myths about inspection, so we thought we’d help out and dispel some of these myths to help if you’re hosting Ofsted.
Myths make it harder on everybody and impact on those they inspect. So we’ve launched a guide that features the top 10 myths and facts that should be read alongside the Early years inspection handbook.
Ofsted aren’t in the game of tricking people or catching them out, even if you feel like it sometimes, they’re looking to see settings as they are. They don’t want people worrying about what they think they require, when that may not be the case. So, what are those commons myths? Download our free PDF guide here
This myth busting guide is just an overview and more information can be found at Gov.uk. I would encourage everybody to get in touch with Ofsted directly if they come across other frequent misunderstandings.-->
Employer of the year
Posted: March 14, 2018
Congratulations Derwent stepping stones, you have been announced as Eden Training Solutions’ Apprentice Employer of the Year 2018.
Why Derwent Stepping Stones?
Here’s what Abigail Wigmore, Head of Operations at Eden Training Solutions had to say:
“Eden-ts have been working with Derwent Stepping Stones since 2017 and have developed a fantastic working relationship with them. Janet (CEO of Derwent Stepping Stones), Paul Taylor (Qube) and I work together tirelessly to build training packages that meet the needs of the Derwent Stepping Stones team. Janet explained that equal opportunity and helping support the local community is at the heart of their ethos which struck a chord with me as I feel we have the same ethos here at Eden-ts.”

Congratulations Casey Hanlan, you have been announced as Eden Training Solutions’ Apprentice of the Year 2018.
Here’s what Ryan Ward, Director at Office Monster, the service-led, online office supplier that Casey works for had to say:
“Casey completed her apprenticeship with us in January 2018 and is a credit to our company.
“If it wasn’t for Casey being so fantastic, we may not have continued with our apprenticeship programme here at Office Monster.
“As such, we feel that Casey deserves to be recognised as a positive role model for others. She has proven that when you apply yourself and work hard, you can learn and develop your career as an apprentice.
“Since starting, Casey has consistently performed and met all of her targets. Furthermore, she has given us the confidence to invest in two further apprentices.”
