Theme 1: (inspected by PH and college lead Stephen Greenwood)

groups of learners are effective?
Priorities for improvement

safeguarding policy.
Ensure that plans are put in place for a dedicated safe area for 14 to 16 year

Theme 2: (inspected by TN and college lead Sara McCann)


What actions have been taken to improve the quality of teaching, learning and
assessment swiftly
Priorities for improvement
Provide training so that:
o teachers plan learning activities that challenge different learners to
excel
o teachers develop confidence and expertise in teaching theory
effectively
o teachers hone their skills in questioning and coaching techniques
o all vocational subject teachers confidently promote the value of English
and mathematics in their subjects.
Theme 3: (inspected by TN and college lead Sara McCann)
What actions have been taken to ensure that the observation of teachers practice is
strengthened to drive improvements in teaching, learning and assessment?
Priorities for improvement
Ensure that learning walks and observations of teaching, learning and
assessment focus on the specific characteristics of practice and secure
findings that will drive improvement.
Make sure that all planned professional development opportunities for
teachers are informed by the judgements secured through learning walks and
observations.

1
Ensure that the recent inspection reports findings on aspects of teaching,
learning and assessment are taken into account fully when planning learning
walks and formal observations.
Ensure that teachers whose practice is judged to be outstanding are provided
with the opportunity to share their practice.
Theme 4: (inspected by PH and college lead Shaun Clifford)
What actions have been taken to ensure that learners attendance, punctuality and
behaviour are good?
Priorities for improvement
Ensure that the monitoring of attendance leads to appropriate interventions
that support the re-engagement of learners.
Complete the tendering process to establish an increased presence of security
staff; that the commissioned company ensures any gaps in staffing for
sickness are covered immediately.
Theme 5: (inspected by TN and college lead Phil Hall)
What actions have been taken to ensure that the progress of learners and
apprentices is monitored rigorously and governors, leaders and managers
understand accurately the strengths and weaknesses of the provision?
Priorities for improvement
Ensure that all teachers record and monitor all learners progress rigorously;
that governors, leaders and managers use this information to secure high-
quality provision.
Improve the post-inspection action plan to ensure that there is a specific
focus on recording progress against planned actions.
Ensure the plan includes a strong emphasis on the characteristics of teaching,
learning and assessment and specifies how weaknesses in teachers practice
will be improved.
Theme 6: (inspected by PH and college lead Rowan Hartfree-Pearce)
What actions have been taken to ensure that leaders and managers work effectively
with the local enterprise partnership, employers and community organisations to
ensure the range and content of all provision is aligned to local and regional
priorities?
Priorities for improvement
Establish a productive working relationship with the local enterprise
partnership (LEP).
Ensure that all curriculum planning against LEP identified sector skills gaps
involves local employers and community organisations.
