Officially the best college in the country choose ForSkills
The national education standard; Ofsted’s Common Inspection Framework (CIF) which came in to force in 2009, awarded the overall grade of Outstanding to Barnsley College….only the fourth GFE College in the country to achieve the overall Outstanding grade. This is all in a landscape where the number of Outstanding Colleges has fallen by two thirds over the past year; standards have been raised, criteria made more robust and the necessity for transparency introduced. But most impressively Barnsley College was awarded 20 Outstanding grades out of a possible 22, and 2 Good grades, which is by a distance the best GFE College grade profile in the Country to date.
ForSkills congratulates Barnsley on their success and welcomes them as another high achieving, Outstanding customer using our Functional Skills diagnostic assessments to inform their learning programmes.
