2020 Full Inspection Report
What does the provider need to do to improve?
  • Teachers should integrate work placements fully into programmes for young learners so that they reinforce what they learn at college and develop suitable behaviours for working on site.
  • Leaders and managers should ensure that teachers know how to teach English and mathematics in such a way that learners are able to apply what they know and what they can do to their vocational subjects.
  • Leaders and managers should put in place staff development and training that help tutors develop their skills as teachers, in particular to teach the theoretical components of courses.
  • Governors should improve their oversight of the programmes so that they are aware of the quality of training. They should provide firmer support and challenge to hold leaders and managers to account for any drop in standards.
  • Leaders and managers should help young learners develop the behaviours they need for study and work. This includes improving their attendance at college.
