Exeter College has been placed in the top spot in a league table of colleges published by FE Week, an industry leading publication focused on delivering the latest further education and skills news.
The table was compiled using a points based system, with points awarded against a number of key criteria published by the Department of Education. Each college was scored out of a possible 16. A process that saw Exeter College score a perfect 16, something no other college was able to achieve.
“We are delighted that our unremitting focus on outstanding teaching, learning, employer engagement and the student experience has been recognised by this accolade.
“We have great students and a great team of staff. I would like to thank everyone – partners, employers, students, staff, leaders, governors and stakeholders – all of whom have contributed to our ongoing success.” said Exeter College Principal, John Laramy.
This is the latest in a line of accolades awarded to the college in recent years, including being graded Ofsted Outstanding in 2014 and awarded the prestigious City & Guilds ‘UK Centre of the Year’ award earlier this year.
