QAA identified a number of examples of good practice during their review in 2014:
• The College's imaginative approach to supporting and engaging its higher education students in an environment which strengthens their academic and personal development, and career prospects
• The targeted deployment of staff development to deliver improvements in the quality of experience of its higher education students.
• The genuine efforts of the College to include students in the feedback and development of HCA; 82% of students believe they are ‘listened to’, and students are overwhelmingly positive about their involvement with College policies and practices.

What Ofsted said about us in 2017:
"Students enjoy their time at college. The ethos of the college through the
integration of college values ensures that students feel safe and are enabled and
empowered to take creative risks and develop their artistic potential in a safe,
respectful and tolerant environment."
"Standards of students’ work are high. Leaders, managers and lecturers have
high expectations of their students, who achieve well on vocational programmes
and develop highly effective practical and technical skills of a professional standard."
