Solihull College & University Centre rated ‘Good’ across the board!

The College is delighted to have retained an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating following its recent inspection.

During the four-day inspection in March, all sites of the College were inspected, Blossomfield Campus near Solihull town centre, Woodlands Campus in Smiths Wood, and merger partner Stratford-upon-Avon College.

Thirteen members of Ofsted’s inspection team assessed 8 categories, including the quality of education, leadership and management, and apprenticeships. All 8 were rated as ‘Good’, and Ofsted remarked approvingly on the safe and secure environment the College fosters.

The College is proud to share some of Ofsted’s key observations:

“Learners develop their independence and flourish in their local communities.”

“Learners develop a good understanding of the theoretical components of their subjects and demonstrate that they can apply this to their practical skills.”

“Teachers and assessors are well qualified and have strong links to industry.”

“Learners and apprentices talked positively about the supportive relationships they have built with staff, teachers, and assessors.”

“They [leaders and managers] have successfully developed a curriculum which meets local and regional skills needs.”
