Goals and Aspirations:

On starting at the College, we determine each learner’s individual goals and aspirations, and what they hope to get out of being at College. We continue to follow up with our learners for several years after they leave the College, to see how they have progressed and whether they have been enabled to realise these goals:

Seeking Feedback:

We regularly collect feedback from our learners and their families to ensure we can continually improve our services and respond to any issues that this might highlight. In our most recent survey:

  • 95% of learners felt that they were doing well.
  • 100% of learners felt that the teaching in the College is good.
  • 100% of parents agree that the College curriculum meets the needs and interests of their child.
