Highbury College, Portsmouth: Outstanding Provision in Further Education is a record of the eight workshops offered at Highbury College's 'Outstanding Showcase' event which took place on 4 November 2011. The showcase celebrated particular areas of good practice and the outcome of the College's journey over recent years, during which time its Ofsted inspection grades moved progressively from Satisfactory to Good and on to Outstanding.
'At last we have it, a very modern manual on the leadership of learning to outstanding levels in FE and Skills! This generative publication from Highbury College walks us through, with amazing clarity and generosity, a systemic whole-college approach for a whole sector - via constant, consistent and conscientious improvement - breeding ambition as it goes, and just at a time when this topic moves to centre stage in the sector's life. This is organisational and professional dignity at its best, managed by the best - accessible, respectable and doable while holding proudly to its own core values and unceasing efforts on behalf of learners. I commend it to all of us.'
Dame Ruth Silver DBE
'This is a must read for all FE Principals and leaders who want to ensure their colleges attain outstanding standards across the board. It contains a wealth of advice, practical approaches and examples of leadership behaviours that REALLY work. What a valuable asset for the whole college sector, I recommend it highly.'
Lynne Sedgmore CBE - Executive Director 157 Group
'What emerges from this important and exceptionally useful report is that Highbury College focuses on achieving excellence in all its endeavours and engenders that same commitment and belief in its students and all its partners. That focus is as single-minded as it is shared throughout the College.
