“I have some ideas to take away with me which will be useful to the college as a whole”

Delegate who attended the fully booked workshop in February. 

Ensuring students pass their courses isn’t enough anymore. The Value Added and progress measures have evolved to measure progress made by learners from a particular starting point. Instead of simply focusing on student’s pass rates colleges needs to concentrate on getting high grades.

Ofsted Inspections are now increasingly focusing on progress measures. This workshop is designed to help you improve your college Value Added (progress) Scores.

The workshop will provide delegates with an overview of Value Added and progress Methodologies and will support you to develop an action plan which can be implemented at your college. This action plan will look at the overall Level 3 progress measure as well as the maths and English progress measure. It will help you identify what you should do better at your college and what steps you should take to improve your score.

This practical workshop will include case studies to demonstrate how these colleges have achieved consistently high scores.
