What Ofsted say What Outstanding looks like: Walsall Adult and Community College are an Outstanding provider because: The proportions of learners who achieve their qualifications are very high or improving rapidly, except for a very few learners on English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) courses. Learners make outstanding progress. Many have not engaged in learning since leaving school and have low starting points; however, because of outstanding teaching and support they do extremely well. Learners gain a very good range of additional skills that help them improve their quality of life and their employability. Learners significantly improve their confidence and ability to work on their own. Teaching, learning and assessment are outstanding. The college has improved these rapidly since the previous inspection, from satisfactory to outstanding in two and a half years. Tutors plan and teach lessons that meet the needs of individual learners extremely well. Good use of an excellent range of activities ensures that learners are fully involved. Tutors use questioning and discussions very effectively to ensure learners develop a clear understanding of their subject. Learners are extremely positive about their experience and thoroughly enjoy their learning. Outstanding leadership by the Principal has resulted in considerable improvements since the previous inspection. The Principal and senior staff work exceptionally well together to monitor and improve the quality of the provision. Walsall Adult and Community College (the college) provides a wide and innovative range of courses and subject pathways for learners to follow. An exemplary focus on sustainability has benefited learners, the college and the community through very good use of finance and resources. The college has very good links with the local community. The outstanding promotion of equality and diversity has created a community within the college where everyone is welcomed and valued.
What OFSTED say What OFSTED have said about inclusion at City Lit : City Lit promotes equality and diversity strongly within its key strategies, processes and targets. The socially inclusive ethos and curriculum are successfully increasing participation by new learners, including those from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds and from very hard to engage groups. Staff training in equality and diversity is excellent. Tutors are extremely effective in promoting equality and diversity with learners. In particular, humanities, languages and visual arts tutors skilfully use diversity to strengthen community cohesion and learners’ awareness of global topics and different cultures. Senior and curriculum managers routinely analyse, and take successful action to improve, success rates by different groups. As a result, success rates compare well across City Lit’s main learner groups. Learners’ complaints are resolved well and governors and the learner panel receive a regular analysis of the nature of these complaints.
