The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London's Key Stage 4 provision has been judged as 'Good' with 'Outstanding' features. The College was inspected during a Quality Assurance visit in January (23 January 2015) by the North London Strategic Alliance for Alternative Provision (NLSAAP), representing the boroughs of Islington, Camden, Haringey, Enfield and Hackney. Deborah Tucker, the Alternative Provision Commissioner (Interim) for Haringey Children & Young People Services and Gabrielle Grodentz, Head of Alternative Provision, London Borough of Islington, carried out the comprehensive review of the College's Tottenham-based Key Stage 4 provision.
Preparation for the visit involved gathering evidence for the Quality Monitoring and Evaluation Framework document, covering 8 categories: Safeguarding; Health and Safety; Achievement and Standards; Teaching and Learning; Admissions; Guidance, Support and Planning for Progression; Student Welfare and Well-Being; Leadership and Management and Professional Development.
Although, the final report has yet to be received, the overall outcomes have been shared with the College, which has been graded as 'Good' across all 8 categories with several 'Outstanding' features.
Key Stage 4 teaching is for students aged 14 – 16 years old who prefer to learn in a College environment rather than at School. The College works closely with neighbouring boroughs and a range of local schools to provide the very best in education and training. As well as ensuring every effort is made for the young people to obtain five GCSEs or equivalent at C grade, the learners are also able to sample vocational areas, such as, Construction and Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy.
Vice Principal Kurt Hintz said: "This is a fantastic and well deserved result. The College is immensely proud of its Key Stage 4 provision and learners, many of whom progress to full time courses at the College when their Key Stage 4 studies are completed."
