What does the provider need to do to improve?

Eradicate the minority of teaching, learning and assessment that is not of a high enough standard, and ensure that learners make good progress by:

  • ensuring that teachers agree more stretching targets for most-able learners that extend their skills and knowledge further
  • ensuring that learners on ESOL programmes have sufficient opportunity in lessons to practise accurately their spoken English
  • ensuring that teachers direct the work of learning assistants more closely and check the learning and understanding more thoroughly for those learners who require additional help with their studies.
