A comparison of the effectiveness of level 3 provision in 25 post-16 providers

This small-scale survey investigated the effectiveness of level 3 provision in school sixth forms, general further education colleges and sixth form colleges. Inspectors visited 25 institutions which provided level 3 qualifications for students aged 16 to 19. The survey found the overall quality of provision and outcomes was good or outstanding in nearly three quarters of the providers visited. Against this background of generally strong level 3 provision in all types of provider, the most effective group of providers among the sample visited was sixth form colleges. The report compares different aspects of provision and identifies the factors which led to good or outstanding achievement.

A focus on improvement: proposals for further education and skills system inspections from September 2009

This consultation is now closed.

We have reviewed arrangements for the inspection of the FE and skills system to ensure that they are coherent and well matched to the needs of the user and the quality of the service, and that they develop our ability to target inspection where it will make the most difference. Our proposals for a revised Common Inspection Framework and for the inspection of colleges, work-based learning and nextstep from September 2009 are set out in this consultation document.
