We are thrilled to share the news that East Coast College has received an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating during our recent inspection, making us the largest Ofsted ‘Good’ college in Great Yarmouth and Waveney.
Our glowing Ofsted report, published on 12th March 2020, praised our staff as being respectful and caring, helping to develop students into well-rounded individuals – not just academic achievers. Our students appreciate how their teachers truly listen to them and go out of their way to help. Staff have set an atmosphere that is calm and orderly, geared towards learning. As a result, the Ofsted inspection found our students to be highly motivated, placing great value in their learning.
The Ofsted report also commended us on creating an environment where students feel safe and receive great personal help and advice when required. Student well-being is a top priority for our college, as stress can be felt from exam pressure or while students are developing. Our highly trained team of wellbeing staff work closely with partners and external agencies to provide the best possible care.
“Teachers develop students’ knowledge and skills beyond the qualification. Students develop confidence and the specific skills needed to enter the workplace.” – Ofsted
