We’ve been listed in FE Week after our OFSTED report was published a few days ago. The article is very positive, showing general improvement across the board for all colleges listed in the article from around the country. The specific section regarding Friends Centre is cited in the quote below:
“Brighton-based adult and community learning provider Friends Centre rose from ‘requires improvement’ to ‘good’ in a report published on Tuesday (February 21).
Inspectors said that college leaders had “taken very successful action to raise achievement rates” with most learners now achieving their qualification or individual learning goals.
The 1,000-learner provider has also built “excellent partnerships” and ensure that courses “align well” to its city’s needs while providing learners with “good advice, guidance, support and progression routes”.”
