Inspectors returned to the College on October 10th for a one-day monitoring visit.

Their aim was to evaluate the progress the College has made in addressing the main areas for improvement identified at the last full inspection in January 2018.

The follow-up report by Ofsted, published this week on November 6th, acknowledges there has been progress in all key areas.

Angela Foulkes, Chief Executive and Principal of The Sheffield College, said: “We are pleased with this report. It is a good endorsement of the progress the College has made since the last full inspection.”

The overall areas and judgements are listed below.

  • Have governors and leaders put sufficiently robust actions in place to resolve weaknesses in the college's provision? Significant progress.
  • What actions have leaders taken to improve the proportion of students who achieve challenging qualifications in English and Mathematics? Reasonable progress.
  • What steps have leaders taken to improve the proportion of students on study programmes and adult learning programmes that achieve their qualifications, and what has been the impact?  Reasonable progress.
  • How successful have the steps taken by leaders to bring about improvements in the quality of teaching, learning and assessment been, and have they resulted in teachers taking sufficient account of students’ individual needs when planning learning? Reasonable progress.
  • Have leaders taken effective steps to ensure that teachers plan and deliver activities that enable students and apprentices to gain a good understanding about the risks of radicalisation and extremism? Reasonable progress.
