It is with regret that we have learned that Ofsted has judged the provision at Nash College as inadequate overall in terms of effectiveness.
Livability is committed to achieving the very best in outcomes and delivery across all our services.
Following this report, we are taking immediate action to make very important improvements to the quality of provision at the college to ensure the best outcomes are achieved for the students that we serve and support here.
The report has highlighted a range of strengths observed during the inspection and they are undoubtedly positives we can build on. Inspectors noted that most students enjoy attending the college; that learning takes place in a respectful and caring environment; that students feel safe and that the new Senior Leadership Team has a sound understanding of what needs to be done at the college to raise standards. Ofsted noted that there is a suitable plan in place for raising standards and to achieve the necessary improvements going forwards.
CEO for Livability – Helen England said:
“I want to provide my personal assurance that as the new CEO for Livability, I am totally committed to supporting the Nash College Leadership Team to rapidly improve the quality of provision. I have full confidence our acting Head of College Zara Tippey, who brings very considerable experience of education leadership and school/college improvement to Nash. She joined us in September and has been an integral part of the new leadership and governance arrangements which Ofsted noted and which we believe will be a vital part of the future success of the college.”
