Hereward college gets an outstanding award

We are delighted to announce that Hereward College have been achieved an outstanding InspireEducation Employability Award!

Hereward College is motivated to ensure its students have not only a great curriculum experience but also that they are also supported to develop the key skills needed for a successful transition into work. The college recognised that it has a lot of excellent practice in place but used the inspire EducationEmployability Audit as a tool to identify what areas could be improved on.

The Inspire EducationEmployability Audit and Award Assesses:

• Management and coordination of careers education
• Careers, impartial Advice and Guidance delivery
• Work related learning
• Enterprise
• Employability
• Student Voice

InspireEducation conducted a first audit in June 2013, after which a report was given to the college detailing recommendations and suggestions for improvement. The college then manage any changes and adjustments before inviting InspireEducation to compete a final assessment. The result of which was that the college was given the highest award of Outstanding due to their excellent program.

Tilly Neil said

“The Process provided direction and advice, recognising what was woring, what areas could be improved on and providing ideas and help on how to do that. It was a really supportive process. We had an Ofsted inspection before the final audit and I believe the process of working with the InspireEducation Employability Audit helped me not only to prepare but also to feel confident that we are delivering the best service to students”

Laura-Jane of InspireEducation said

“Hereward College are deeply committed to their student success, they already had a good programme in place, it was a pleasure to help them take that to an outstanding program knowing that all students will have this great careers and employability experience at Herewards is very rewarding.”
