Leeds College of Building Rated ‘Good’ in Ofsted Report

November 2019

The Principal of the UK’s only specialist further education construction college says he is “delighted” after Leeds College of Building was graded ‘Good’ in all areas in its most recent Ofsted inspection.

Since the previous inspection, staff have spent the past two years working to improve standards. Ofsted has recognised the advances made by classing the overall effectiveness grade as ‘Good.’

The quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management, programmes for young people, adult learning, apprenticeships, and provision for learners with high needs all achieved the same ‘Good’ classification.  Ofsted’s verdict came following a full four-day inspection late in October.

Derek Whitehead, Leeds College of Building Principal, said:  “We’re delighted with this Ofsted result. It is recognition of the hard work and dedication of each and every member of our staff, governors, students, and many external partners.”

“The report celebrates our inclusive and respectful learning environment, supported by tutors who are industry experts. It also highlights the positive attitudes of our students who are learning the hands-on and soft skills sought by employers. A huge thanks go to everyone involved in achieving this brilliant result.”
