Kensington and Chelsea College Earns Quality Mark

The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has confirmed the quality and standards of provision at Kensington and Chelsea College following its review in March 2015.

A team of QAA reviewers visited Kensington and Chelsea College and judged that its academic standards, the quality and enhancement of its student learning opportunities, and the quality of information about its learning opportunities all meet UK expectations.

The review identified a number of examples of good practice. These include:

  • the College’s use of the work-based mentoring process to support and enhance student learning opportunities
  • the role of employers in learning and assessment activities.

The review also highlighted the support offered to students through the admissions process.

It’s a fabulous outcome for the College and confirmation of our high standards and approach to Higher education.Principal of Kensington and Chelsea College

QAA’s Higher Education Reviews are carried out by experts from other universities and colleges. Every review team includes a student reviewer, because QAA believes that students should be partners in the quality assurance of their education.

The team that reviewed Kensington and Chelsea College included Dr Glenn Barr (independent) and Lucy Bannister (student reviewer from Cleveland College of Art and Design).

A successful review means that the College can display the QAA Quality Mark, indicating to UK and international students that the College meets national requirements for standards and quality.
