    16. 16. Delivery <ul><li>Start point </li></ul><ul><li>- Encouraged by LSC, DfES to use public providers </li></ul><ul><li>- Assumed COVES in engineering to be capable </li></ul><ul><li>- Some concerns over ability to assess (FE Colleges struggling to assess our Team Leader course) </li></ul><ul><li>Learning points </li></ul><ul><li>- Public providers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Much weaker than expected (even the COVES) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Many companies opting for private providers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Public standards (NVQ) can be very low </li></ul></ul><ul><li>- Assumption of capability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- BIT II knowledge amongst trainers is weak </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Assess only delivers very little benefit </li></ul></ul>We needed a major upskilling programme
