We are very proud to have gained the Investors In People ‘framework for excellence’ ADVANCED (GOLD) award in 2019. Our aim is to ensure that staff are able to excel through developing a supportive, aspirational environment, which impacts on the well-being and performance of staff and students. We continue to have yearly reviews until 2022, when we aim to be re- accredited.
