Further education matters

In the summer of 2005, Ofsted and the Adult Learning Inspectorate completed the first cycle of inspections of further education colleges. The four years of the cycle saw an improvement in the colleges, slow at first, but later more rapid, as the colleges learned to respond more effectively to the challenge of inspection and reinspection.
