Ofsted 2022

The Ofsted inspection report, published on 30th March 2022 rates three out of four of the college’s ‘provision types’, courses for apprentices, adult learners and learners with high needs, as ‘good’. Whilst courses for young people ‘require improvement’, inspectors found that “learners aged 14 to 16 on full-time provision benefit from a broad and well-planned curriculum that meets their needs well”.

Summary of key findings

  • Leaders and managers have developed productive relationships with local employers to help inform curriculum design and content.
  • Managers have recently implemented a range of new courses, particularly for adults and apprentices, to enable learners to develop the skills that they need to access local jobs.
  • Leaders and managers ensure that adult learners effectively develop the skills and confidence that they need to prepare them for employment.
  • Leaders have good support arrangements for children who are looked after, including unaccompanied minors who have recently arrived in Britain. Staff quickly engage these learners in their studies, which helps them to integrate and make friends.
  • Teachers ensure that learners whose English language skills are limited quickly develop the skills needed to help them participate in their communities. As a result, these learners remain on programme and progress to further study and employment well.
  • Safeguarding officers monitor the effectiveness of actions taken to support individual learners well.
  • Teachers have successfully created an inclusive culture in which learners collaborate with each other to achieve their goals.
  • Learners and staff of different faiths and cultures work together harmoniously within the college.
