CEO John Evans

Ofsted has awarded the highest possible outcome for The Cornwall College Group (TCCG), following a successful monitoring inspection in February.

The college group was given the accolade of “significant progress” in the recently published report compiled by Her Majesty’s Inspectors.

TCCG’s principal and chief executive, John Evans, welcomed the report, and said it was testament to the hard work carried out by staff over the last 12 months.

He commented: “We are delighted that Ofsted has witnessed first-hand the incredible results stemming from the effort by staff to provide a quality education and experience to every single learner, especially with the unprecedented challenge of doing this in the last 12 months.

“And I am pleased that their report recognised our success in reviewing the college curriculum to ensure it meets the needs of our learners and the local employment opportunities.”

The report stated: “A new leadership team was appointed in October 2019. They have made significant progress in remedying the weaknesses identified at the previous inspection.

“Leaders have systematically reviewed the college curriculum, checking with partners that it now meets the needs of learners and local employment opportunities. Each subject lead has assessed their curricular objectives and carefully considered how best to sequence learning and assessment.”
