We are delighted for one of our clients, Fareham College, who have achieved a much deserved “Outstanding” assessment in its recent Ofsted report.
The College came close to a clean sweep, collecting outstanding assessments in six out of seven headline fields across the board: overall effectiveness, leadership and management, quality of teaching, personal development, behaviour and welfare and apprenticeships. The college also achieved a good result for its adult learning programmes.
What makes this additionally satisfying for Fareham College is that it’s only one of three Colleges awarded an outstanding assessment in more than a year by Ofsted.
The strengths of a College are in its leadership and teaching and the report was full of praise for the high quality of both at Fareham College, both for study programmes and for apprentice.
It stated: “Teachers are highly experienced in their vocational subjects and they use their skills and enthusiasm to inspire students and apprentices to progress and achieve.”
Highlights from the inspectors’ comments included:
- Senior Leaders and Managers, including Governors, have an ambitious vision for the College.
- Teachers and Assessors prepare students and apprentices for their next steps in Education and training.
- The College promotes the highest aspirations and standards for students and staff, with very high expectations set for all students.
Fareham College is a large Further Education College of around 3,000 students. Its Lecturers are specialists in industry who channel their experience into the teaching they deliver to their students.
The College enjoys state-of-the-art facilities across two campuses, offering a wide selection of courses at different levels, including technical and professional training in a range of Engineering specialisations, including Automotive, Marine, Aeronautics and Motorsports.
The College works closely with employers, industry experts and university partners to ensure the training offered students prepares them fully for both work and higher level study.
We’re pretty sure that students and staff will be walking around both campuses with a real sense of pride in their College and all of the team at onlyFE congratulates them.
