What does West Herts College need to do to improve further?
  • Leaders must ensure that they help staff to improve the professional behaviours of the minority of learners who do not reflect the high standards demonstrated by most learners across the college.
  • Leaders must ensure that managers and teachers of the minority of subjects where learning is not yet consistently good work together effectively to plan the curriculum and share good practice. This will ensure that learners are able to apply new learning to their studies fluently.
