The University of West London has been awarded the highest possible grade of ‘Outstanding’ in all areas for the London School of Hospitality and Tourism’s Further Education provision, following an Ofsted inspection in late December last year.
Scoring top marks across the board, UWL secured the highest grade in all of Ofsted’s key areas. This included student outcomes, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and effectiveness of leadership and management of the FE provision.
Praising UWL students for their high professional standards and strong work ethic, the inspectors stated that students were extremely well prepared for progression to the next level of study or employment and demonstrated exceptional creativity and innovation. The independent and impartial assessors, who report directly to parliament, also endorsed the University’s outstanding links with world renowned hotels and high quality employers and associations across the hospitality industry which provide unparalleled opportunities for students.
Professor David Foskett MBE CMA, Head of the London School of Hospitality and Tourism, commented: ‘These extraordinary results are testament to the school’s reputation as a provider of industry-relevant courses, underpinned by excellent teaching and resources, clearly highlighting how our Further Education courses develop young people to the highest standard.’
