We are proud to report that we have had another outstanding grade one observation teaching and learning from Staffordshire County Council Community Learning.  We are delighted with this.

Learners have long-term mental ill health and/or (mild) learning difficulties.  They are fully engaged in the RARPA process and love looking in their folders to see what feedback the tutor has written since the last session.  The weekly review includes a section for new vocabulary, as well as reviewing progress.  Tutor tracking sheet ensures that tutor and support staff are all aware of progress against targets for each learner.  Excellent attention to individual needs with wide range of activities for learners to choose how to engage in the session.
