Please find below the Ofsted Inspection Report for Valley College.
This was the first graded inspection for Valley College and took place two weeks into a new academic year. At the time of this inspection, a third of the learner population were new to college and two tutors were new in post. You will see this context referenced in the report.
During the inspection, inspectors gathered feedback from advocates and learners, and the inspectors shared that this feedback was exceptionally positive. We are immensely pleased that our stakeholders believe the educational offer at Valley College meets their needs.
You will see from the report, that the overall grading for Valley College is ‘Requires Improvement’ however, Personal Development and Behaviour and Attitudes are graded as Good.
Our ‘move to good’ plans have commenced, and we look forward to Ofsted carrying out a ‘monitoring visit’ within 7-13 months, so that we can showcase progress made towards the four identified areas for improvement.
