Ofsted’s Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman spoke at this year’s Association of Colleges conference and recognised the “notable improvement in performance” for Waltham Forest College.

Addressing sector leaders and governors, Amanda commented on a rise in the proportion of general Further Education Colleges rated good or outstanding and the College was singled out and recognised as one of them.

The education watchdog inspected the College in February 2018 and praised all staff and governors on their unwavering commitment to improving the College, securing a good-quality provision across all areas of the College.

Waltham Forest College has also been crowned the number one London College for learner and employer satisfaction in the FE Week league table for colleges.

David Fitzgerald, Manager for Hillyfield Academy said,

“I have found working with Waltham Forest College extremely helpful and staff are very knowledgeable around employer relations and apprenticeships – I highly recommend them.”

This College now ranks in the top 3% of overall Further Education colleges in the UK with a high score of 87% in learner satisfaction and 93% of employers satisfied with the overall quality of training that the College provides.

College Principal, Dr Joy Kettyle said,

“The results from the league table clearly identifies the hard work and commitment of college staff and our priority is to ensure that the local community has a college it can be confident in.

“I am now consulting with our key stakeholders to review our strategic priorities and align these with the skills priority of the borough as well as London on a whole. We are working very closely with the London Borough of Waltham Forest and actively cultivating relationships with employers and developing partnerships to improve the life chances of our learners.”
