TRACKSS was established in the late 1990s as a CIWM (WAMITAB) and City & Guilds training and assessment centre for specialist NVQs in the waste management and street cleansing industries. As new awards have become available we have added them to our portfolio, these include recycling and grounds maintenance qualifications. In 2010-2011 the NVQ scheme was replaced by the QCF and subsequently by the RQF scheme in 2016.

Our RQF candidates and other learners are drawn from all sectors and specialisms. The full range of RQF qualifications that are available are shown on the "RQF Qualifications" and "Other Qualifications" pages however, for full details, please contact us.

Most of our learners / candidates obtain their award through CIWM (WAMITAB), (the Waste Industry Training and Advisory Board) for whom we are a leading assessment centre. Because we consistently obtain high grades in our CIWM (WAMITAB) external quality assurance inspections, we are recognised as a CIWM (WAMITAB) "Centre of Excellence".

Our learners / candidates have always enjoyed an extremely high success rates. This is very much down to their individual commitment and also to the support of their employer and the expert services of the TRACKSS associates who deliver our programmes.

When Learning and Skills Council funding was made available, TRACKSS became an approved LSC centre. In more recent years, the funding was provided by SCF, the Skills Funding Agency via Wiltshire College (click on “Funding Partnership Arrangements”). However, this funding is increasingly scarce.

When we provided publically funded programmes, were subject to government Ofsted inspection. We were examined by the Adult Learning Inspectorate and awarded Grade 1 in all areas (ALI has now been superseded by Ofsted).

Beacon Status: As a result of this level of success in our inspections we were awarded Beacon Status and also Ofsted Outstanding.
