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.”
