Ofsted recognise Stoke-on-Trent College’s improving progress 

We are very pleased to be able to share with you that Ofsted recently recognised the progress our college is making in its improvement. 

Inspectors found in their recent progress monitoring visit that our College has made “significant progress” in improving its GCSE mathematics provision, the highest judgement available to inspectors in this type of visit.  Inspectors praised our team’s approach to using new approaches to teaching mathematics to help learners practice their skills to improve their knowledge.  Inspectors also recognises the benefits of the new online learning resources introduced in enabling learners’ progress to be tracked and improved. 

In addition, Ofsted also reported “reasonable progress” for the improvements made to our apprenticeship provision and in the curriculum planning to build learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviours over time. 

“We are really pleased that Ofsted have recognised all of the hard work our teachers and staff have done over recent years to improve our students’ experience.  As an ambitious college, we continue to take on board the useful feedback inspectors have provided us but we’re really pleased to receive confirmation that our students are now benefiting from ongoing improvements to teaching, training and support.” – Jason Lancaster, Deputy Principal
