Care Quality Commission awards Hereward with a ‘Good’ standard of care

Hereward College has been rated ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for its care of young people who stay with the college on a residential basis.

Based in Coventry, Hereward is a Further Education college for young people with disabilities and additional needs. The college offers specialist facilities and all round life, learning and work experiences for both day and residential learners as well as respite care breaks for young adults.

Jon Clugston, Vice Principal – Student Independence and Progression says:

“We are delighted to have been rated ‘Good’ under the new CQC inspection framework. Hereward is a learner centred college, and maintaining a safe and secure environment for the young people in our care is at the heart of what we do.

“Our staff are highly trained and committed to ensuring all learners are supported and encouraged in independent living and to make their own choices.”

All residents at the College have access to onsite therapies and support services including nurses, mentors, job coaches, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.

Respite activity breaks are also available during term time and holidays in Hereward’s fully accessible accommodation.
CQC is the independent regulator of all health and social care in England. They are given powers by the government to register, monitor and inspect all health and care services.

Hereward College was inspected under the new framework in November 2015. The full inspection report can be found here.
