Following the requirements of the Common Inspection Framework, we will support learners in the following ways:
Our learners benefit from high expectations, engagement, care, support and motivation from staff. Our staff will inspire, enthuse and motivate learners to achieve and succeed to their highest levels.
Our staff will use their skills and expertise to plan and deliver teaching, learning and support to meet each learner’s needs. Every learner will have an individual plan, so they progress at a pace that is right for them. Our tutors will be well qualified with excellent work experience from within the sector.
Staff initially assess learners’ starting points and monitor their progress, set challenging tasks, and build on and extend learning for all learners. Learner progression will be central to everything that we do, and learner plans will be developed around the individual. We will ensure that learners lean by doing, and a range of exciting programmes of activities and challenges will be set. These programmes will motivate, stimulate and provoke thinking and learning. Our programmes will be exemplary centres of excellence.
Learners understand how to improve as a result of frequent, detailed and accurate feedback from staff following assessment of their learning. All of our staff will be experienced in providing professional information, advice and guidance. Learners at any stage of their journey will understand how they have progressed, and what needs to be completed.
Teaching and learning develop English, mathematics and functional skills, and support the achievement of learning goals and career aims. English, mathematics and functional skills will be integrated across all training programmes, and will be undertaken in a way that brings such learning to life.
We will provide appropriate and timely information, advice and guidance to support learning effectively. Each of our learners will have a personal tutor that will remain with them throughout the duration of their programme and who will know the learners well and understand what their learning needs are. The tutor will also be able to guide and give advice on bursaries and where to seek personal advice from. Our tutors will be exceptional, and will have learner needs at the heart of everything that we do.
Equality and diversity are promoted through teaching and learning. All students will have a full awareness of what equality and diversity is, and will understand the benefits of having a diverse environment, be that at work or personally. Through learner personal and social development the principles of respect, social conscience and embracing diversity will be integrated into training programmes, ensuring learners have a full understanding and strong social values.
