2022 Full Inspection Report
What does the provider need to do to improve?
  • Leaders should improve the curriculum for personal development to better prepare students for life in modern Britain and the world of work.
  • Leaders should improve the quality of careers advice so that students are fully informed of all options open to them for their next steps and those students who wish to take an alternative route are as well prepared and supported as their peers moving on to university.
  • Curriculum leaders, supported by their managers, should improve the quality of teaching in the few areas where performance is low so that all students, including those with high needs, make the progress that they are capable of.
  • Senior managers should ensure that governors understand fully the weaknesses of the college and hold leaders to account so that they improve these weaknesses rapidly.
