Teachers can and do change lives. They get students interested in and excited about what they are learning.

Many of our teachers are highly trained professionals from industry with specific knowledge of their subject area. They are committed to providing our students with the best possible educational experience. They are proud of the achievements of their students and they are passionate about their profession.

To discover more about the people behind the whiteboard, we interviewed tutors from a variety of different subject areas to find out why they are proud to teach.

We strive to provide excellent quality teaching in a supportive environment and we have recently been rated as ‘Good with Outstanding features’ by Ofsted!

Here are a few comments that highlight the amazing work our tutors do every day:

• “Teachers and assessors are well qualified and most have current vocational and industry experience, which they use to spark students’ and apprentices’ interest in the subject.”

• “Teachers direct questions skillfully to students to check and deepen their understanding, developing their confidence in using technical and often complex terminology correctly and fluently.”

• “Teachers have high aspirations for their students and apprentices and set high standards for conduct and appearance. As a result, students are well behaved in lessons and in social spaces.”

• “Teachers have high expectations of their students – they agree challenging targets and grades for them to achieve, monitor progress closely and provide them with feedback that helps them to improve.”

• “Students and apprentices are highly respectful of each other and of college staff, exemplifying British values in their daily lives and showing tolerance to each other.”

• “Students develop very good skills for work, such as teamwork, personal organisation, punctuality and communication skills, and make good progress in developing their confidence and self-esteem.”
