Tough 10k run at Hadleigh Park

On Saturday the 16th of April, two members of our staff; Tom Evans and Rob Bunting took part in the Tough 10k run at Hadleigh Park to help raise money to beat cancer. After a 10k run of winding rocky paths, mud tracks and steep hills they persevered and completed the run with the times of:

Tom: 1 hour 14 minutes and 08 seconds
Rob: 1 hour 7 minutes and 09 seconds

A massive well done to the guys on completing this for a worthwhile cause!

Latest News - Its Official - Ofsted Grade 2

We are delighted to announce that TheLightBulb Ltd has been awarded a Grade 2 – 'Good' judgement from Ofsted in its January 2016 inspection - one of only a few providers in Essex to achieve a grade 2 or above.

This fantastic result is confirmation to the hard work of everyone involved at TheLightBulb; staff, learners and employers.

Ofsted recognised that we are serving the local community, helping the long term unemployed back into work and offering apprentices opportunities to develop good work-related skills and knowledge as a result of the training we provide.

They also were impressed with how our tutors use their substantial vocational expertise to give learners a realistic understanding of their chosen area of work


Summary of key Findings include:

  • Apprentices develop good vocational skills and knowledge; they become more confident and an asset to their employer.
  • Almost all apprentices remain in employment and progress in their careers.
  • Nearly half of all adult learners referred by Jobcentre Plus progress to employment.

Moving forward, we will continue to encourage an opportunistic workplace for our Learners.
