Education Scotland has created a new quality framework, How Good Is Our College, to allow colleges to scrutinise their work, evaluate what is working well and what could be better.
The framework aims to integrate Education Scotland’s evaluative activities and the Scottish Funding Council’s Regional Outcome Agreements and requires colleges to promote equity, ensuring that all learners have the best chance of a successful outcome.
The New College Lanarkshire Evaluative Report (2017-18) was published on 26 February 2019.
The report said that ‘New College Lanarkshire is recognised for leading in skills development both locally and nationally’ and that a ‘key strength is the strong links built with industry’.
The quality of our services and willingness to improve was rated as ‘good’ and outcomes for leraners was rated ‘satisfactory’.
