An article in the TES FE claims that Ofsted is considering changes to its grading system, examining College’s at a campus level rather than just corporation level.
This is something NCG has been passionately calling for and our CEO, Joe Docherty, is featured in the story sharing his view on the current system and what a potential change would mean for NCG and all its colleges.
“Ofsted finds it practically impossible to inspect NCG and understand its constituent parts,” said Chief Executive Joe Docherty.
“It does not discriminate between performance in West Lancashire College, Kidderminster College or Newcastle College, and is therefore not serving the interests of learners, businesses or any other critical stakeholders of any of the colleges. We Welcome the consultation and will be delighted to take part.”
