We know our impact can be huge; we contribute £500m to the economy each year and 97.4% of our students leave college and go into employment or further study, but we know we can do more. The College has been on a journey of self-improvement following an Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) inspection in 2016 which rated the College as ‘Requires Improvement’. The Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) also issued a Financial Notice of Concern (FNOC) and has since been supporting and advising the College leadership to improve the financial status of the organisation. As well as working to improve outcomes for, and the progress of, learners at the College, this has led to the recruitment of a new Principal & CEO, alongside the […]
