In July 2015, the government announced a rolling programme of around 40 local area reviews, to be completed by March 2017, covering all general further education and sixth-form colleges in England.
The reviews are designed to ensure that colleges are financially stable into the longer-term, that they are run efficiently, and are well positioned to meet the present and future needs of individual students and the demands of employers. Students in colleges have high expectations about standards of teaching and learning and the extent to which their learning prepares them to progress further, to higher education or directly into employment.
The Leicester and Leicestershire Area review report, published on August 3rd 2017, is available to down load below.
