What does the provider need to do to improve?
  • Improve learners’ progress and attainment particularly in mathematics by:
    • setting, recording and reviewing productive targets that are hard enough
    • providing all relevant tutors with training to enable them, where appropriate, to include the teaching of mathematics in vocational lessons
    • developing learners’ everyday arithmetic skills further to help them understand personal money matters
    • setting more complex tasks for more able learners particularly for intermediate level learners.
  • Rapidly improve attendance by:
    • putting in place thorough arrangements to follow up diligently learners who miss lessons
    • setting individual challenging but realistic incremental improvement targets to eliminate unauthorised absence
    • ensuring absent learners are not at risk during the periods when they are expected to be in lessons
    • ensuring that the initiatives to improve attendance and reduce persistent absence focus closely on those learners who are at a risk of homelessness.
  • Consolidate the recent improvements and strengthen strategic leadership by:
    • requiring the non-executive directors to set the highest expectations of the senior manager, and rigorously managing their performance to consistently raise learner’s achievement
    • strengthening arrangements to share good practice
    • replicating identified outstanding features from each centre across the provision, and
