A warm welcome for Sheffield College upgrading

Friday, June 21, 2013

Sheffield Heeley MP, Meg Munn, has welcomed the upgrading of Sheffield College to ‘good’ by the education watchdog Ofsted.  Inspectors have paid tribute to staff and learners, saying students benefit from good teaching and high quality support which plays a crucial role in helping them to achieve.  Ofsted also acknowledge there has been a marked increase in success rates for most types of courses, and praised the senior leadership team for bringing about significant improvements.

Meg Munn said:

“Sheffield College has focussed on preparing students for future careers and skills for employment.  Ofsted’s report shows that this approach has been successful and I am delighted that the hard work of students and staff has been recognised.”

Heather MacDonald, Chief Executive, Sheffield College, said:

“We are very pleased with this result.  It’s great news for our students and staff, as well as the city and business community.  We have worked very hard to increase success rates, raise our profile in Sheffield and develop strong partnerships to improve the prospects for our students.”

Last year 91% of students at Sheffield College who completed full-time courses moved on to positive destinations.  Inspectors found that progression rates are good between different levels of study within the College, as well as onto apprenticeships and into university and higher education. 

This latest result shifts the College up a grade from a previous judgment of ‘satisfactory’ at the last full inspection in 2010.  The curriculum areas inspected were health and social care, construction, information and communication technology, sport and public services, English, independent living and leisure skills, employability training and business studies.
