Summary of key findings

This is a good provider Governors and senior leaders have rectified the key weaknesses from the previous inspection; they have improved the quality and consistency of teaching and outcomes for learners. Governors, senior leaders and staff understand the local community well. They use this information to develop a safe, supportive and harmonious environment and ambitious culture.

Leaders work effectively with local stakeholders to develop courses that meet the needs of learners and the local economy. Most learners make good or better progress from their starting points, and develop secure skills, knowledge and understanding. Learners progress very well in business, history, psychology, engine...ering and English GCSE.

Most teachers provide learning activities that motivate, engage and inspire learners to make good progress. Teachers develop learners' communication skills well and challenge them to use the appropriate technical and specialist language in challenging debates and discussions. Learners' positive attitudes and good conduct reflect the staff's efforts to promote high standards.

Learners flourish in their personal and social development. Most learners experience high-quality work placements and develop skills that prepare them well for employment. Senior leaders do not report to governors in sufficient detail on their progress towards improving quality.

Learners' attendance on level 2 courses is too low. In a minority of instances teachers do not use group work effectively and set work that is too easy. In these lessons learners do not make the progress of which they are capable.
