Some of the College’s recent

successes

• We were inspected by Ofsted and achieved the

highest possible grades for all areas of our work. As

a consequence the College was officially graded as

an ‘outstanding’ provider of education and training.

• The number of students that have stayed on their

course and passed their examinations is in the top

10% of all colleges nationally.

• We have established new work-related foundation

degrees in response to identified skills shortage

areas. These are Motor Engineering, Software

Engineering, Physical Activity & Sport and Hospitality

Management.

• The College has opened a high specification 3G all

weather sports pitch.

• We have gained an excellent reputation for our

programmes that support unemployed people back

into work.

• The College has built a new sports pavilion and

established a high quality gymnasium for our

learners, staff and communities.

• The College has implemented a ‘Single Equality

Scheme’ in accordance with best practice in

the public sector. All of our students and staff

received appropriate training on their rights and

responsibilities contained within the scheme.

• We have reduced our carbon footprint during the

year by cutting energy consumption by over 70

tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Working toward future success

• The College is planning to open a new vocational
