Pan-island peer review confirms Highlands College is ‘a good college with outstanding features
Following a rigorous pan-island peer review led by Joanne Pretty of the Department for Education (England), Highlands College has been confirmed as ‘a good college with outstanding features’.
Over the course of week commencing Monday 20 March, a series of face-to-face meetings took place with college managers, lecturing staff, support staff and students, in addition to learning walks that provided opportunities to speak with students during classes. The reviewers evaluated performance against the following:
• Quality of Education
• Student Entitlement, Support and Inclusivity
• Apprenticeships, Planning and Skills Development
• Finance, Resources and Operations
• Performance against Strategic Objectives
All areas were judged to be good with outstanding features. The peer review takes place every four years and involves pan-island partners from the Isle of Man, Guernsey, and the UK.
