Learner View

The Learner View questionnaire assists Ofsted in understanding how well Middlesbrough College supports its learners to ensure the best possible outcomes. This questionnaire is open to learners of all ages, and on all courses. 

Learner View asks for your opinion on a range of 10 aspects: from whether the lessons/training sessions are well taught to if you would recommend the College to a friend. Ofsted will use the information you provide when making decisions about which providers to inspect, and when.

By sharing your views, you’ll be helping the College to improve. You will also be able to see what other learners have said about Middlesbrough College.

Or, if you want to, view the results for other further education and skills providers in England.

For more information you can watch the Learner View video.

Thank you for taking the time to complete Learner View.


Parents and Carers

During an inspection, Ofsted will observe a range of activities to assess the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. They will also look at the safety of the College, student behaviour, the range of extra-curricular activities that support development of learners and how well the College is led and managed. A particular focus will be placed upon how we prepare students for work and life in a modern British society.

Ofsted has an online questionnaire for parents and carers of students aged 14 – 18 or aged 18 - 24 where the learner has learning difficulties and/or disabilities to complete to enable you to give them your views about Middlesbrough College. Inspectors will use the results of the survey during inspection to identify issues to look at in more detail.
