WM College is a learner centred college which aims to provide enriching and enjoyable lifelong learning for all adults and so is very pleased that in this recent inspection Ofsted have recognised the strengths of the college provision.

The inspection report identified that Learners benefit from a broad choice of programmes that enable them to return to learning, and it commended the high quality of teaching and learning that is demonstrated across the college. It also commented on the high level of personal care and support provided by college staff that enables adults to be successful in their learning and engage within their local community.

In particular Ofsted stated:

“Leaders have developed a curriculum for young and adult learners that provides good opportunities for learners to be economically and socially active. For example, tutors ensure that adult learners, many of whom are new or returning to study after a significant time away from education, improve and build on their English, mathematics and digital skills and knowledge. Learners are well prepared for further learning or employment. Most learners achieve their planned learning goals.

“Learners feel safe and well supported during their time at college. Staff have a strong focus on the safeguarding and well-being of learners. They work closely with community and charity partners to support learners who are often socially excluded. While at college, learners thrive in the supportive community. Learners know who to contact if they have any concerns.

We’re very pleased that Ofsted have recognised and commented upon our uniqueness and ethos and our role within Camden in this way. This is something that we all cherish and work hard to maintain.
