‘Rea­son­able progress’ in im­prove­ment

Stockport Express - - News -

IN­SPEC­TORS from Of­sted have found Stock­port Col­lege is mak­ing ‘rea­son­able progress’ in im­prov­ing most ar­eas, but still have grave con­cerns over English and maths.

The govern­ment watch­dog un­der­took a mon­i­tor­ing visit fol­low­ing an in­spec­tion that found the col­lege ‘in­ad­e­quate’.

And its lat­est re­port says that rea­son­able progress has been made in lead­ers im­ple­ment­ing a clear ac­tion plan and sys­tems to mon­i­tor stu­dent progress.

Also de­scribed in the same way were the qual­ity of teach­ing, ap­pren­tice­ship pro­grammes and strate­gies to im­prove at­ten­dance.

But the mon­i­tor­ing visit re­port states that ‘in­suf­fi­cient progress’ has been made in im­prov­ing stu­dents’ English and maths skills and grades.

The re­port says: “Lead­ers and man­agers have im­proved the postin­spec­tion ac­tion plan and are now plac­ing greater pri­or­ity on the main ar­eas of rec­om­men­da­tion iden­ti­fied in the in­spec­tion re­port.

“Se­nior lead­ers now set much clearer tar­gets and im­prove­ment ac­tions closely mon­i­tor the progress that mid­dle man­agers make in de­liv­er­ing these ac­tions.”
