December 2019 - Ofsted Report
In December 2019, Islington ACL was graded 'Good' the report highlights what is is like for our learners
Across the wide range of courses taught, learners have a good experience. They like
the small classes in local community venues near to their homes, such as in libraries.
Staff are friendly, care about learners and are always available to listen to learners’
concerns. This helps to improve learners’ confidence and levels of self-esteem.
Teachers know their learners well and are skilled at guiding each one to learn new
knowledge and skills. For example, learners on jewellery-making courses are taught
to create simple websites so that they can sell the items they have made.
Learners receive good advice on what courses they can do next. Teachers give good
support to learners to search for jobs and complete application forms.
We are already working on further improving our service with the aspiration of being graded outstanding in all categories when we are next inspected.
