Inspectors say college still needs to improve

Have your say

IMPROVEMENTS need to be made at a college, a report has found.

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has published a report on standards and quality at Fareham College following a review in February.

A team of QAA reviewers visited the college and judged that the quality of its information about learning opportunities meets UK expectations.

However, reviewers judged that its academic standards, and the quality and enhancement of its student learning opportunities need to improve.

The review report recommends that Fareham College formalises partnerships with employers and mentors to support foundation degree students.

However, the review praised the close working relationship between the college and employers.

Principal Nigel Duncan said: ‘Fareham College is proud of the breadth and standard of its higher education provision, particularly the work that it undertakes with our partners, including local and regional employers.

‘We appreciate the advice offered by QAA and look forward to developing our HE offering in line with the report’s recommendations.’
