Halesowen College praised as key delivery partner


In a recent Ofsted inspection for University of Worcester, Halesowen College has been praised as one of the key delivery partners for its Initial Teacher Education programme.

The Diploma in Education and Training programme is validated and quality assured by the University of Worcester and delivered at Halesowen College as a partner of the University.  It leads to a nationally recognised teaching qualification and provides employment opportunities in a range of settings such as secondary schools; further education colleges; work-based learning; adult education and community learning.

Ofsted Inspectors commented: “Leaders pay serious attention to transforming trainees into passionate teachers who are determined to raise the aspirations of the pupils, students and learners they teach.”

Head of the University’s Institute of Education, Catriona Robinson said: “Further Education is a critical stage in a young person’s education journey, as well as in helping older learners to develop new and existing skills. We enjoy excellent partnerships with many Further Education providers including our lead delivery partner, Halesowen College, and see our role in educating FE teachers of the future as a vitally important responsibility in our overall mission to deliver high quality education for all.”

Craig Tucker, Assistant Principal Quality and Standards at Halesowen College, said: “This report reflects the dedication, support and determination of our exceptional teachers and mentors. Their commitment has led to the acknowledgment of the standards and quality of the training by the inspectors. We take immense pride in the accomplishments of our trainees and remain focused with providing them with an outstanding foundation for their careers in the Further Education sector.
