What does the provider need to do to improve?
  • Strengthen teachers’ regular use of a wide range of assessment techniques in lessons. Ensure that teachers use these to check frequently on students’ learning and progress and reshape their lessons appropriately to accelerate the pace, increase the level of challenge and deepen understanding where appropriate.
  • Promote students’ development of English and mathematics by reinforcing correct use of language, technical vocabulary spelling, reading, writing and use of mathematical skills in subject-based lessons. Ensure that teachers correct spelling and grammar consistently in written work.
  • Sharpen the effectiveness of students’ short-term targets in individual learning plans to help them accelerate the progress they make.
  • Make full use of opportunities to develop students’ learning about cultural differences.
  • Ensure the management of apprenticeships is more effective by monitoring their progress rigorously, strengthening the link between training and assessment and ensuring employers and learners understand the programme fully
