Ofsted says we’re GOOD
The official Ofsted report following the December inspection is now published and the results are very pleasing indeed. WEA gained a “good” rating across all the areas covered in the inspection (the lot!) and an overall rating of “good”. You can click here go to our national website to read more about the report and get a link to the complete document.
For a body with such a wide range both in type of provision and geographically as our organisation has, this is a wonderful endorsement. To do well in Ofsted inspections it’s not only necessary to be doing the right things, but to be able to demonstrate that they are being done. This means that we must thank not just tutors, but office staff and managers at all levels, the directors, trustees and our Chief Executive Ruth Spellman, and of course all of you, our volunteers and students, without whose lively input (and patience with all those forms that tell the story of your achievements) we could not have told the inspectors of the great education that goes on in WEA.
