According to the annual performance league tables published by FE Week, a leading publication focused on the further education sector, Basingstoke College of Technology is one of the top colleges in the country for advanced technical skills training. BCoT had the third highest score nationally in FE Week’s ‘16-18 Positive Progression League Table’, putting the College top of the leader board locally and one of the top colleges in Hampshire for students going into education, employment and training destinations.
A very proud Principal Anthony Bravo said: “These important performance figures, which are based on key criteria published by the Department of Education, show that we deliver exceptional outcomes for our students with a staggering 91% progressing to higher education, employment and training destinations. We are by far the very best choice locally for advanced technical skills training and there really is no reason why anyone should want to travel out of the town with BCoT on the doorstep providing exceptional training and outcomes”.
It’s not just student progression which BCoT is celebrating. The FE Week league tables also ranked BCoT in the upper third of 202 colleges nationwide for learner satisfaction, employer satisfaction, young and adult learners’ progression. The College is riding high with accolades having taken top honours in the National Achievement Tables issued by the government earlier in the year. In these BCoT was ranked number three in the country for Level 3 achievement on higher level Apprenticeship programmes and impressively in the top 13% for achievement at Level 3 for 16-18 year olds. These figures once again ranked BCoT alongside the top colleges in the area.
Anthony Bravo goes on to comment: “It’s great to finish the year on such a high note and following the chancellor’s autumn statement we were encouraged to hear the government is to invest further funds in the new T-levels, the technical qualification being phased in during 2019. As a specialist vocational college the emphasis here at BCoT is already on advanced technical skills, ensuring students are work-ready and our impressive run of league table success demonstrates we are the local experts in this field”.
