What does the provider need to do to improve further?
  • Train tutors and assessors to set learners and apprentices clear, specific and achievable targets for improvement to enable them to make the full progress of which they are capable. Monitor learners’ and apprentices’ achievement of their targets frequently to ensure they are achieved fully and on time.
  • Improve further the quality of teaching, learning and assessment by training tutors to plan and teach lessons that enable learners to fulfil their potential and make rapid progress with their learning and skills development. Ensure teachers are sufficiently skilled at developing learners’ mathematics skills more consistently in vocational subjects.
  • Improve further learners’ attendance at and punctuality to lessons by setting clear and specific expectations at the start of courses and intervening swiftly when their attendance and punctuality decline. Support learners who do not attend frequently and on time to overcome their barriers to high rates of attendance.
  • Develop rapidly tutors’ confidence and expertise in extending learners’ knowledge of British values and how to protect themselves from the dangers of extremism and radicalisation.
