- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College was one of just two colleges to be recognised at Estyn’s annual Recognising Excellence in Education and Training Awards held at the Radisson Blu in Cardiff last week.
Thirty primary, secondary, special and independent schools were recognised at the awards alongside two further education colleges.
Meilyr Rowlands, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education and Training in Wales commented: “Tonight’s awards reflect a truly collective effort on the part of each provider and its community. They are testimony to the enthusiasm of all staff, the achievements of learners and the support provided by parents, carers and other partners in your community.”
Inspected in January 2017, Estyn graded the College’s current performance as ‘Good’ and its prospects for improvement as ‘Excellent’. Overall six ‘Excellent’ and nine ‘Good’ judgements were awarded. Inspectors judged the College learning environment to be ‘Excellent’ and praised staff for “creating a highly inclusive environment in which learners feel respected and safe”. Inspectors also awarded an ‘Excellent’ for care, support and guidance which they described as “highly effective”.
Following the awards evening College principal, Sharron Lusher commented: “We are delighted that the hard work of both our staff and students was officially recognised at this prestigious awards evening. We are proud to be Pembrokeshire’s College and look forward to continuing to work along our partner schools, employers and the wider community to equip individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to make Wales prosper.”
