Ofsted & QAA
All schools and colleges are regularly inspected by Ofsted to ensure that they are providing an acceptable standard of education to their students.
The College's most recent Ofsted inspection resulted in a very complimentary report. See extract below:-
“You and your leadership team have maintained the good quality of education and training in the college since the previous inspection. You continue to place a strong emphasis on improvement through accurate evaluation of the quality of the provision so that you can very effectively identify what is working well and where the provision needs further improvement. Quality improvement plans and regular progress monitoring ensure that any underperforming courses improve quickly. You place a strong emphasis on the importance of good or better teaching and learning. Lesson observations, together with a number of other measures, such as the analysis of student feedback and monitoring of attendance and punctuality, effectively identify strengths and areas for improvement. You and your managers take effective action to improve the performance of your teachers so that the large majority of students make good or better progress towards their targets and qualifications.”

Student Governor 2016, Andie Ngulube commented,
“To have maintained this sort of level for their last two Ofsted inspections is fantastic for the College and I’m really proud to be a part of it. It is a much bigger College now and quite far-reaching in its provision and yet it still looks after everybody so well; this is a great achievement.”
