Kensington and Chelsea College were very pleased with the excellent results, with inspectors commending the college on its safe and welcoming environment for learners and the good teaching and learning. Good support for learners was also a key attribute that gained the college the excellent grade.
The college has undergone many changes over the past three years to create a new curriculum relevant to local employment opportunities, which has resulted in the brilliant grade. The college has been modernised greatly and now boasts a beauty salon, new music production facilities, and a science lab, but they don’t plan to stop there. The college has applied for planning permission to further modernise its site on Hortensia Road, and September will see the addition of a new site at Park Royal. The new site will offer specialised diplomas in construction, with OFSTED endorsing the plans and the college’s delivery across the new West London Campus.
Principal Mike Jutsum said of the results, “the new KCC has proved itself, to grow by more than 50% and to secure such good results in inspection, all in the same year, rewards the hard work and high quality of all our teams”
