Bristol City Council is a Good provider

  • Effective leadership has resulted in a very strong focus on community improvement and raised aspirations for all learners.
  • Bristol City Council (BCC) has developed programmes to attract and engage learners with significant barriers to learning from the most deprived areas. These courses respond to the needs of the community and to individual learners particularly well.
  • Support for the most vulnerable learners is highly effective in enabling them to succeed and progress into further education, training and employment
  • Partnership working is excellent with a strong focus on meeting the employability needs of learners and employers.
    The use of data is very effective in monitoring learners’ progress across the whole provision and identifying areas of relative under performance.
    The success rates for the adult learning programmes and for apprenticeship programmes are good.
