Tresham – Most Successful College in East Midlands


3440-tStaff and students at Tresham College of Further and Higher Education are celebrating after being placed 9th in a national league table for Success Rates achieved by 16-18 year olds out of a total of 221 colleges across the country.

This position is from the latest Skills Funding Agency league table 2012/13 which also highlights Tresham as the top performing General Further Education
College in Northamptonshire and the East Midlands.

The Skills Funding 2012/13 Education and Training National Success Rate Tables places all general further education colleges in order based on the success rates achieved by students of all ages, on all courses, at the college. These tables are used by colleges and Ofsted inspectors to assess performance and will be used by Tresham to continue to improve success rates, the progress to higher level courses and opportunities for employment.

Stuart Wesselby, Principal of Tresham said:

“I am delighted with this achievement as it is a testament to the quality of teaching and learning that takes place at Tresham. Achieving top 10 status out of all the general further education colleges in the country shows the quality of training we offer to school leavers after their GCSEs and how much progress we are making towards our aim of being outstanding.

Our success rates of 92.1% for 16-18 year olds is more than just a statistic, it represents more than 3,250 students success stories and one they will continue in further study or employment.

This success coupled with our continually updated provision in Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough means that Tresham really is the best place to study after your GCSEs in Northamptonshire.

The report also highlights that Tresham’s achievement rate for all learners was 97%. This figure is calculated by analysing the number of learners who achieved a qualification at Tresham divided by the number of learners who completed their course.
