1 Learning and skills inspection outcomes LSIS Lorna Fitzjohn Divisional Manager, Learning and Skills January 2012

2 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 2 The Annual Report of Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector 2010/11

3 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 3 Overall performance of the learning and skills sector  an increase in the percentage of providers judged good and outstanding  considerable decrease in the proportion judged inadequate  improving trend masks substantial variations both in quality and progress between different types of provider  too little outstanding teaching was seen in colleges, adult and community learning providers and prisons  40 providers of work-based learning, 41 colleges and six adult and community learning providers had their inspection brought forward on the basis of the risk assessment

4 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| /11 Inspection findings The overall effectiveness of all learning and skills providers by remit areas 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 (number of providers)

5 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 5 Colleges  less than half the colleges inspected this year were judged to be good or outstanding. However, this is in the context of a risk- based approach to inspection  a high proportion of previously good colleges, selected for inspection on the basis of Ofsted’s risk assessment, have declined in their performance this year  no colleges achieved an overall outstanding grade for teaching and learning and only 11% of the lessons observed were judged outstanding  within a single college, the variations in the standards of teaching and its impact on learning can be very wide, especially between subject areas  sixteen colleges remain satisfactory on their third inspection

6 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 6 Key inspection judgements for all colleges 1 Sept 2010 to 31 Aug 2011 (number of colleges)

7 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 7 Changes in the overall effectiveness of colleges inspected in 2010/11 compared with their previous inspection (number of colleges)

8 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 8 Colleges - stuck at satisfactory?  new leaders and/or structure not yet showing improvement  over half of these colleges had experienced significant changes to their senior management team since their last inspection  poor action planning  ill informed leaders- by overgenerous self assessment and teaching and learning grades  ineffective systems to monitor and quality assurance provision  particularly poor monitoring of teaching, learning and assessment  unaware of declining or static achievement

9 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 9 Colleges – teaching, learning and assessment  insufficient focus on learning  insufficient focus on checking learning  poor initial assessment of learner’s needs  learners on wrong courses  insufficient response to literacy (and numeracy) needs of learners  boring lessons with no clear aim  attendance low and/or declining  use of ICT weak

10 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 10 Sixth form colleges  in the previous inspection cycle around 77% of sixth form colleges were judged good or outstanding. Many of these good, and all of the outstanding, colleges were outside the scope of inspections this year as a result of the proportional approach taken to inspection

11 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 11 Independent specialist colleges  the number of independent specialist colleges inspected this year which were judged to be no better than satisfactory is too high, with seven of the nine providers judged satisfactory and one inadequate  independent specialist colleges judged satisfactory or inadequate could not demonstrate adequately the gains made by learners in their time at the college and too often teaching and learning did not meet individual needs

12 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 12 Independent learning providers  the proportion of independent learning providers judged good or outstanding for overall effectiveness has increased considerably compared with last year  56% of the independent learning providers inspected this year, were good or outstanding compared with 47% in 2009/10, despite the fact that risk assessment ensures weaker providers continue to be prioritised for inspection  the increase in the percentage of independent learning providers judged to be outstanding, from 4% last year to 10% this year is particularly striking  of the 102 providers inspected this year who have previously been inspected, 41 have improved and a further 29 have maintained either good or outstanding performance

13 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 13 Independent learning providers  outcomes for learners were judged to be good or outstanding in 62% of the providers inspected this year. This shows a marked increase from 2009/10 when it was 48%.  the better outcomes for learners can in part be explained by the increase in the proportion of providers where teaching, training and assessment were good or outstanding. This rose from 48% last year to 58% this year.  however, leadership and management remain one of the weaker aspects of provision and continue to show some room for improvement.  in particular, the contribution that self-assessment makes to improving the quality of provision and outcomes for learners is not strong – it was judged inadequate in 15% of those providers inspected this year.

14 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 14 Employer providers  of the 15 employer providers inspected in 2010/11, just over half were outstanding or good, and the remainder were satisfactory. These are similar proportions to last year  outcomes for learners were judged to be good or outstanding in nine of the 15 employer providers inspected this year  the quality of teaching, training and assessment was outstanding in two employer providers and good in a further nine  practical training in the workplace is often of a very high standard and usually carried out by very knowledgeable trainers or experienced coaches

15 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 15 Adult and community learning  very similar to last year  no providers were judged inadequate  very small proportion of outstanding provision remains a concern  Forty-three providers inspected had been inspected previously, over half improved and only two declined  The social and economic benefits gained by learners included better communication, literacy and numeracy skills, confidence, self esteem and improved employability  no provider was judged to have outstanding teaching overall but teaching was judged outstanding in 10% of lessons observed

16 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 16 Prisons and young offender institutions  the overall profile of prisons inspected this year is slightly more positive than last year, but it is still not strong  fewer prisons were judged inadequate for their learning and skills provision and a greater proportion judged good, but less than half of the provision inspected was good overall and none was outstanding  many of the prison workshops that produce work for external companies are providing good opportunities for prisoners to develop skills for employment and a good work ethic  in many cases prisoners’ skills are not sufficiently recognised or recorded to provide evidence to prospective employers on release  the quality of teaching and learning in prisons was good in only half of the prisons inspected

17 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 17 Probation Trusts  as was the case last year, no outstanding provision was seen  no providers were judged inadequate this year, compared with three last year  capacity to improve was judged to be the weakest area and was deemed no better than satisfactory in all but one of the Trusts  this is driven by the poor quality of self-assessment which is not developed enough in most Probation Trusts inspected to act as a tool for improvement

18 Learning and skills inspection outcomes| 18 Update  out of 26 colleges inspected - one outstanding, 10 good, 9 satisfactory, 6 inadequate  satisfactory grade to be ‘Requires improvement’  revised framework – September 2012  four grades  overall effectiveness judged through:  outcomes for learners  teaching learning and assessment,  the effectiveness of leadership and management
