The Sheffield College is taking effective action to tackle the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a new Ofsted interim visit report.
The education watchdog is carrying out interim visits after suspending routine inspections earlier this year due to the pandemic.
Ofsted’s interim visits are monitoring how colleges and schools are managing the return to full education since September 2020.
The visits also aim to help students, parents, employers and government understand how education providers are meeting the needs of learners.
Ofsted’s interim visit to the College took place on campus and remotely over two days - October 14th and 15th 2020.
Angela Foulkes, Chief Executive and Principal, The Sheffield College, said: “The pandemic’s impact on teaching and learning is like nothing we’ve seen before. Despite this, our students and staff have shown incredible resilience, adaptability and resourcefulness, and we were very proud to share that with Ofsted.”
She added: “The Sheffield College has a vital role to play in a wider skills-led recovery. We are continuing to do everything we can to support our students, staff, employers and local communities through this challenging time.”
