AssistKD graded 'Outstanding'

AssistKD has been awarded an 'Outstanding' rating from Ofsted for our Business Analyst Apprenticeship scheme. With fewer than 10% of UK apprenticeship providers inspected in 2021-22 achieving the 'Outstanding' award (1), this is a significant achievement.

"Apprentices are enthusiastic about their learning at AssistKD. They are very well supported by staff, who listen to them and help them to resolve concerns successfully. As a result, apprentices become very adept business analysts quickly." 

Ofsted, January 2023


The UK's leading specialist company delivering Business Analysis training services, AssistKD, has offered the Business Analyst Level 4 Apprenticeship Scheme since 2017. The scheme offers a recognised and effective entry point into the profession and is the ideal starting point for anyone launching a Business Analysis career.

AssistKD BA apprentices develop a portfolio of business analysis skills, learning from highly knowledgeable and experienced business analysts while gaining real life industry experience. Employers adopt the BA apprenticeship scheme to unlock the potential of both new and existing employees, and develop in-house business analysis expertise.  

AssistKD's Apprenticeships Director Lawrence Darvill and Apprenticeships Manager, Nicole Alderton are delighted with the 'Outstanding' grading from Ofsted.

"Ofsted recognition at this level does feel like a milestone in our apprenticeships journey, and something we want to build on in the future."
