  • Use data and self-assessment processes more effectively, so that governors, leaders and managers know accurately what improvements have been made and what they need to do to secure future improvements.
  • Ensure that students attend lessons frequently, particularly in English and mathematics lessons.
  • Improve the training and support given to teachers to ensure that teachers:
    • have high expectations of what students can do and achieve so that they produce written and practical work of a high standard – provide challenging and stimulating activities that inspire and motivate students, so that they make good progress
    • provide useful feedback to students so that they know how to improve.
  • Ensure that teachers of students who have high needs on vocational programmes understand students’ learning and support needs, so that they support students to develop their skills and knowledge well.
  • Managers and teachers should improve the development of students’ English and mathematics as a high priority by:
    • supporting vocational teachers to develop students’ understanding of English and mathematics within the context of their vocational programmes
    • improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in English and mathematics lessons, so that students make good progress and receive a good preparation for their examinations.

What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Develop managers’ skills in analysing and evaluating data to measure accurately the effectiveness of their provision, with particular regard to attendance, retention of students and their success in achieving qualifications.

  • Improve the quality and frequency of apprentices’ reviews and assessments to ensure that they make more rapid progress and that their work meets industry standards consistently.
  • Improve the proportion of students who achieve qualifications in English and mathematics by ensuring teachers plan and teach lessons that enable students to master the specific skills they need for their vocational subjects and employment.
  • Improve students’ punctuality and attendance at lessons, especially English and mathematics, by frequent monitoring, setting students targets for attendance and supporting those with personal barriers.
  • Develop teachers’ skills and confidence in developing students’ English and mathematics skills in vocational lessons.
  • Develop teachers’ skills in planning and teaching theory lessons that motivate, enthuse and inspire students and that enable them to make the full progress of which they are capable and fulfil their potential.
