The accolades keep coming as Fareham College, an Ofsted Outstanding provider and this year’s TES FE College of the Year, has been awarded a Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Bronze award.
The TEF awards are given to higher education providers who meet the rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education. The award, given to the college by the Office for Students (OfS), was made in June 2018 and is valid for up to one year.
The TEF Panel judged that for part-time students, Fareham College has high rates of progression to employment or further study, and is above its benchmark for progression to highly skilled employment.
The panel also recognised evidence at the college of:
- Significant development of resources, including a new centre for advanced engineering.
- The involvement of employers in the continuing professional development of staff, in addition to staff having days in industry to ensure currency in professional practice.
- Good engagement and commitment to study by most students using a range of industry standard learning environments.
Speaking about the award, Andrew Kaye, Deputy Principal at Fareham College, said:
‘We are always striving to raise our standards in education and do better every year, and this is proof of our commitment. Congratulations to all the staff and students. I’m incredibly proud of this further recognition of the high quality learning experiences and training provided by Fareham College.”
