Truro and Penwith College
Truro and Penwith College is one of the best colleges in the country, a fact recognised by Ofsted which gave us Outstanding status following our review in February 2016. We have campuses in Truro and Penzance, both offering an exceptional range of courses, providing industry-standard equipment and resources, all housed in modern, purpose-built facilities.
We were thrilled to be awarded Beacon Status in recognition of excellence and innovation in the Learning and Skills sector, and our Ofsted Outstanding Status is a source of great pride, but what does it mean for you? Comments made by the Ofsted inspectors’ report give an insight as to why our students thrive during their time with us and how you will have the best chance of achieving your goals when you choose Truro and Penwith College. “Learners enjoy great success because of the ethos of aspiration and achievement that pervades the College”. “Teachers are highly skilled, apply their expertise to great effect in planning lessons, and bring a passion to their teaching that challenges and inspires learners to make rapid progress”. Other findings in their report included the teaching being “often inspirational” and that as a consequence “learners make exceptional progress, often well above that which their expectations and their qualifications on entry would predict”. Ofsted also applauded governors and senior leaders for creating “a culture where learning and achievement flourish as a result of excellent teaching.”
