As a young ambitious education and training provider, Springfield Training’s board is working towards being the provider of choice for employers and learners across the Yorkshire and Humber regions.
Over the past few years we have seen a significant increase in the interest of our education and training for the business sector from foundation level through to Advanced level and on to Higher Education, made possible through the changes introduced through the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education.
It was agreed by the board that we would adopt the following themes of governance set out by the Association Of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP)
Theme 1: Strategy and Leadership
Formulate and agree the vision and strategy including defining the ethos and policies of the provider.
Theme 2: Corporate Structures and Roles
Provide clarity between the governance board, chief executive and management team.
Theme 3: Financial Strategy and Audit
Adopt a financial strategy and funding plans which are compatible with the duty to ensure sustainability and solvency of the provider.
Theme 4: Teaching and Learning and Outcome for Learners
Ensure exceptional teaching, training and learning by adopting effective underpinning policies and systems including the monitoring of performance data which also encourage and facilitate the leaner and employer voice.

Meet and aim to exceed its statutory responsibilities for equality and diversity and for ensuring that all learners are safe.
Theme 6: Transparency and Accountability
