ISI Inspection 2021

SUMMARY OF FINDINGS

The college exceeds expectations for the quality of education. At the time of the inspection, all Standards for Educational Oversight were met and quality is excellent.

The quality of the curriculum, teaching and learners' achievements is excellent. Initial assessment arrangements are thorough and accurate. Assessment data is used effectively to ensure students are placed in classes which effectively meet their needs and goals. Courses on offer to students on Student visas meet the definition of an approved qualification, as set out in the Home Office Guidance. Almost all students complete their courses and levels of student satisfaction are consistently very high. The quality of teaching and its impact on learning are excellent. Students benefit from highly qualified and experienced teachers who plan lessons very effectively. An excellent range of resources engages students and extends their developing language skills. Teachers use questioning very effectively to elicit and check learning. They provide high-quality feedback on students' written work, which very effectively supports improvement. Regular academic tutorials provide students with very good opportunities to obtain guidance on independent study. However, they do not always result in setting of specific measureable targets that can be subsequently monitored and reviewed. Students are highly motivated and enthusiastic. They make very good progress from their starting points.

The effectiveness of governance, leadership and management is excellent. The proprietor provides very effective strategic and operational oversight in line with the school’s aims and mission. Consistently high standards of education and student care are maintained with appropriate management of finances and investment in staffing and resources. Oversight of academic standards and safeguarding is effectively discharged to responsible and experienced senior leaders. Leaders and managers provide very clear educational direction. They understand the strengths of the school and identify appropriate priorities for improvement. Leaders and managers are successful in securing and supporting highly experienced and qualified staff.
