Principal delighted by college recognition

Isle of Wight College.

CAREERS and learning advice at the Isle of Wight College has been praised in a new report.

The matrix Standard accreditation examined the support and information given to students about learning and work.

The accreditation review involved a three day assessment, including interviews with students, employers and partners.

According to a report: "Resources at the college are exceptional and they offer learners environments where they are well-cared for, safe and have access to eminently suitable facilities and equipment to aid their learning. 

"From the superb sixth form building, the learning resources centre, teaching areas and through to the vocational skills areas, learners have the ultimate provision and support to meet their educational ambitions.

"Innovation and application of technology have been taken to a new level at the college, whereby internal expertise has embraced emerging trends and developed realistic usage that informs and enhances the daily lives of its learners.

"The ICT resources at the college are at least equal to, and in most cases, beyond those of other further education institutes. 

"Learners were genuinely in awe of the quality and speed of information resources available to them."

It added: "The Isle of Wight College not only presents itself as a nationally recognised College of Outstanding Status, but is clearly intent on retaining that accolade in its future strategy. 

"A focused, dedicated and committed leadership supported by an equally fervent team of professionals, offers excellence in an on-going manner. The desire to exceed and improve is palpable and spreads to the learners themselves."

Principal Debbie Lavin said they were delighted by the re-accreditation.
