This is an exciting time to join Weston College. The College is Ofsted 'Outstanding', its Higher Education provision is graded 'Gold' by the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF), and Weston College has recently won the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, one of only two Further Education colleges in the country to be awarded this prestigious honour. Furthermore, the College is an Investors in People 'Champion' and has been awarded 'Gold' by Investors in People, which demonstrates Weston College's commitment to invest in our staff to improve performance.
