Havering Adult College

2014 Full Inspection Report
What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Ensure that more of the teaching and learning is outstanding. Provide training for all teachers so that they have the confidence and knowledge to integrate English and mathematics into their lessons, and make good use of naturally-occurring opportunities and current events to foster a wider understanding of equality and diversity.
  • Review the courses in independent living so that learners become less dependent on the teacher and progress more quickly. Deploy the learning support assistants more effectively so that all learners can actively contribute in lessons and make better progress. Actively focus on, and encourage, the development of communication skills, so that learners are prepared better for independence and participation in their community.
  • Monitor closely the progress of apprentices on subcontracted provision to ensure that they complete their programmes within the agreed timescale, and that apprentices achieve their qualifications in English and mathematics.
