2011 Full Inspection Report
What does Huddersfield New College need to do to improve further?
  • Review information, advice and guidance arrangements, including entry criteria and guidance processes, to ensure students are on the right course and so that more remain on their course, particularly on AS-level courses.
  • Embed the highly effective monitoring systems, used to support high achievement in vocational areas, consistently across all courses to improve the progress made by all students, particularly those on A-level courses. Monitor closely underachieving students and ensure they attend relevant support sessions.
  • Share good practice in teaching and learning to ensure that learning objectives are clear and that the most-able students develop their critical evaluation and analytical skills to achieve high grades.
  • Sharpen the recording of the evidence used in the self-assessment report. Ensure that all targets in the action plans are sufficiently challenging, specific and measurable so that progress is more rapid and the impact can be measured more effectively.
