What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Increase the number of learners who make good progress and achieve qualifications in English by ensuring that:
    • all staff who teach English have both the subject skills and the teaching skills to help all learners develop their knowledge and skills quickly
    • vocational teachers consistently include activities in their lessons that promote the development of good writing skills
    • vocational staff provide clear guidance on marked work that helps learners to improve their writing, and check that learners follow this guidance on subsequent work.
  • Provide training for staff in underperforming subjects so that they:
    • take into account learners’ existing abilities and plan lessons that provide appropriate challenge for all members of the group
    • plan for learning that provides an increasing level of challenge over time and equips learners with the skills they need to meet this challenge.
  • Take firm action to improve attendance, particularly in English and mathematics lessons.

What does the college need to do to improve further?
  • Set challenging targets with clear timescales for learners and closely monitor their progress towards them so that learners of all abilities make rapid progress in achieving their goals.
  • Managers should make best use of the college’s strong links with local businesses and employers to ensure that all learners on the study programme are able to benefit from meaningful, external work experience to prepare them for work.
  • Raise learners’ levels of achievement in both English and mathematics by more rigorously implementing support strategies for attendance; ensuring learners know exactly what they need to do to improve and achieve higher grades, and making sure that teachers take full account of learners’ individual needs and varying levels of ability when planning, providing and checking learning.
