The College of Animal Welfare (incorporating CAW Business School) has been rated as ‘Good’ across the board following its recent Ofsted inspection.
This is the first inspection the College has been through since the new, more stringent, inspection framework was introduced in September 2015.
Barbara Cooper, College Principal, commented “We are delighted to have received a solid ‘Good’ grade across all areas. This is a fantastic achievement and we are delighted that the report reflects the true ethos of the College and the dedication and hard work of our partners, staff, learners and employers”.
The College was particularly praised for the very large proportion of learners on adult programmes who achieve qualifications, and its teachers who have very good knowledge of the subjects they teach; ensuring learners are motivated and inspired. It was also noted that learners’ standard of work often exceeds what is required of them and that they develop high professional standards. The College’s business school was also mentioned, noting that apprentices in business administration and accounting make excellent progress and their achievement is very good.
The inspectors specifically commended the College’s excellent online learning resources which help learners to continue their learning at times that suit them.
Barbara Cooper added “The inspectors also identified that, at The College of Animal Welfare, an exceptionally large proportion of our learners gain employment in the field of their qualification”.
