About the training provider
As an Ofsted rated Outstanding school, The Earls promotes a challenging and stimulating environment that aims to fully engage students in their learning.
We believe passionately that education has one, deeply important characteristic, that nothing else can match: a good education gives the opportunity for any individual to transcend their starting point. Education is the one thing that allows us all to enhance our natural talents, gifts and abilities. That is what we strive for at The Earls, creating enhanced life chances for our students.
The school motto: 'Ut filii lucis fiatis', almost literally 'to become the children of light', that's what we want for our students: to become enlightened.
