Summary of key findings for learners

This provider is good because: Learners make good progress, particularly in developing their communication and social skills. They become more confident at making choices and interacting with others. Teaching has improved significantly since the last inspection and most lessons are good. Teachers, therapists and support staff work well together to help students to access learning, and personal support for learners is good. Staff use communication aids very effectively to promote learning. The college makes good use of community settings to deliver the curriculum, so that learning takes place in realistic situations. Improvements in leadership and management have led to a culture of high expectations for learners. Changes within the organisation Board that oversees the college mean that Board members now monitor the standard of education and hold managers to account more effectively. This is not yet an outstanding provider because: Although the daily progress of learners is monitored well, their overall progress over time is not always captured sufficiently clearly in review documents. Pockets of teaching still exist that are less than good and there are not enough outstanding lessons. Learners’ understanding of diversity in society is not well developed.
