A huge effort went into our Open Day this year, with Radio Advertising and Press Releases. It was satisfying to see that the effort was duly rewarded with an excellent turnout on the day. We had great support from Oldham Jobcentreplus and it was brilliant to see the young people, parents and employers coming to see us with such enthusiasm. For many, there was the opportunity for the first time to see what OTC has to offer and to meet our staff and see the facilities. All our expectations were exceeded. As a result we are really pleased to be able to extend a warm welcome to all our potential apprentices and employers and look forward to seeing you at OTC very soon. So a great day made successful by a dedicated team that made it all happen – you know who you are!
A community has rallied round to help dozens of families left homeless by the Shaw gas explosion, some of the residents could be out of their houses for WEEKS.
Around 175 properties have been evacuated as a result of the Buckley Street blast.
The affected families are staying with friends or in emergency accommodation provided by Oldham Council and First Choice Homes.
A refuge centre has been set up at Crompton House School where people can go during the day for food and refreshments.
OTC have also rallied round in huge numbers to provide our own support to those in need, through our social media sites, a column in the Oldham Chronicle and a bulletin on Radio Revolution. We ensured the local community were aware of our collection point and we have been overwhelmed on the generosity of staff and Oldham residents.
We took our donation boxes to the Salvation Army on Farrow Street in Oldham.

OTC Inspection Report now available.
OTC’s Board of Directors, Management Team & Staff are pleased to announce the results of a recent Ofsted Inspection - Overall Effectiveness of Provision, Grade 2. We have received very positive feedback and recommendations from Ofsted.
We are committed to improving our services and will focus on what the Inspection Team have recognised. The newly established management team and company restructure is proving to be effective and we feel we have the foundations in place to be a leading provider of learning and teaching.
OTC has invested in a work-based MIS system called FrameUp.
FrameUp, a user friendly management information system allows assessors to monitor learner progress effectively, with the ability to run many reports in a variety of charts to feed back to the learner & their company. This is something we hope will improve the commitment & help motivate learners. The overall and timely success rates reports will be used on a monthly basis to keep track of where we are and for profiling future success rates.
Managers & staff will have an understanding of the organisation’s performance & activity.
