3 Introduction INTRODUCTION Updated July 2012 We are now at the mid-point of our Strategic Plan This has given us an opportunity to review the progress we have made over the last two years and to make some adjustments to our targets and priorities. A summary of the progress we have made is set out on Page 4. Our Strategic Plan 2010 to 2014 continues to build upon our commitment to the Tower Hamlets community while at the same time helps us respond to the rapidly changing world in which we find ourselves and repositions our purpose towards preparing people for employment and their careers. The four strategic aims that have guided the work of the College over the last two years remain. These are concerned with ensuring we deliver an outstanding learning experience for students; that we engage and respond to our communities; that we support the development of our staff; and that we remain in outstanding financial health and continue to invest in our estate. Our distinctive identity, vision and mission allows us to retain our traditional commitment to widening participation, access and opportunity improving skills and personal confidence and helping individuals and employers to realise their aspirations. We operate within one of the most exciting and diverse areas in the country. Given our location, with Canary Wharf on our doorstep, within the Thames Gateway development and serving a diverse community, we know there are large areas of potential growth and untapped demand. We have developed a portfolio of provision that encompasses academic and vocational skills training for young people, adults, the community and employers. We have added to this over the last two years through the introduction of a new technical skills curriculum, improvements progression routes for students and the development of English Plus qualifications for ESOL. The College believes there are opportunities for growth within financial services and the sectors that support it, maths and science-based subjects, health and care, digital media and technology, technical skills and ESOL and will promote and invest in these as areas of specialisation. While we can be proud of the progress we have made we still face many challenges. Our priorities therefore remain the need to: continue to reform and develop our skills based curriculum; address Ofsted s recommendation to ensure at least 75% of our teaching is assessed as good or better; improve still further our success rates to as a minimum national averages in all areas; set a strategy for growth by introducing new provision for year olds, developing courses that support adults into work and strengthening our employer and business enterprise activities; and maintain the investment in our estate. Our Vision by 2014 is to be recognised as a successful, respected and adaptable further education college, that equips our students for their future success by providing an outstanding teaching and learning experience. We will seek to advance the economic and social prosperity of our Communities through far-reaching engagement with individuals, employers and with partners. Our Strategic Aims have been drafted with a view to combining a commitment to our Mission with a commitment to playing our part in the community more generally. The high level strategic aims which will guide our future work are as follows: 1. Deliver an outstanding teaching and learning experience to enrich all our students and ensure they are equipped for their future careers (An Outstanding Learning Experience) 2. Advance economic and social prosperity by extending our work with employers, the public sector and the wider community (Engaging and Responding) 3. Create a diverse, agile and adaptable workforce that can respond to the demands of our students (Developing Our Staff) 4. Provide outstanding financial and physical resources to support an independent, successful and secure College (Improving Our Sustainability and Efficiency) This strategic plan will be supported by an annual operational plan that will set out a series of objectives in relation to the curriculum and key service functions. Michael Farley Principal

4 Our Progress in the Period OUR PROGRESS IN THE PERIOD We are now at the mid-point of the Strategic Plan The assessment is that reasonable progress has been made towards achieving the objectives and targets that were agreed in July Our Ofsted inspection in May 2012 endorsed the progress we have made and clearly set out areas for improvement. A success rate of 76% was achieved in 2010/11 and this is expected to increase again in 2011/12. The College s financial position has improved significantly. We recruited 700 more adult students in 2011/12 compared to the previous year. Our apprenticeship numbers have increased significantly. Targets for recruitment, however, have proved difficult to achieve over the last two years as a result of the withdrawal of Education Maintenance Allowance and increased competition from school sixth forms. The College measures its progress against the Strategic Plan through a series of headline improvement targets, and progress against these over the last two years is as follows: 1. Deliver an outstanding teaching and learning experience to enrich all our students and ensure they are equipped for their futures Success rates improved from 65% to 76% are expected to increase to 79% in 2011/12. 84% of young people and 77% of adult applicants progressed to university. Weaker attainment measured against most equality and diversity strands has been addressed. Ofsted assessed Capacity to Improve as Good. Teaching and Learning was assessed by Ofsted as Satisfactory. Revised quality assurance arrangements, although these need to be applied consistently. Curriculum restructure (September 2010) has strengthened progression pathways. Achievement of Matrix Standard for information and guidance services. 2. Advance economic and social prosperity by extending our work with employers, the public sector and the wider community Introduction of technical skills curriculum. Expansion of Apprenticeship programmes. Increased recruitment of adult students. Introduction of English Plus vocational programmes within ESOL. Partnership activities maintained with Tower Hamlets Council, colleges, employer networks, JobCentre Plus. 3. Create a diverse, agile and adaptable workforce that can respond to the demands of our students Curriculum restructure and business reviews within support areas have improved the efficiency of operations. Improvements in communication with staff through regular briefings. Leadership programme for middle managers has been delivered. Leadership and Governance assessed as Good, with a greater degree of scrutiny and challenge at Board level. 4. Provide outstanding financial and physical resources to support an independent, successful and secure College Significant improvement in financial management and control, resulting in a break-even position for 2010/11. College finances remain assessed as Outstanding by SFA. Staff costs maintained at 70% or below, with agreed financial objectives, despite 7 million funding reduction. Significant capital investment programme for IT and general maintenance commenced. Long-term property strategy agreed and rationalisation of the estate commenced.

5 Statement of Strategic Intent STATEMENT OF STRATEGIC INTENT Our statement of strategic intent pursues our vision to be an outstanding College. It has three components: Our Vision Our vision by 2014 is to be recognised as a successful, respected and adaptable further education college, that equips our students for their future success by providing an outstanding teaching and learning experience. We will seek to advance the economic and social prosperity of our communities through far-reaching engagement with individuals, employers and with partners. Our vision means by 2014 Tower Hamlets College will be: Providing outstanding teaching and learning and support for students and to be recognised as achieving at this high level, based on externally validated quality measures and student satisfaction.

For Everyone - Our purpose is to be the College of choice and opportunity for students for all ages, abilities and backgrounds and for employers. Whilst the College s main target is Tower Hamlets residents, the breadth and diversity of our programme is maintained by drawing students from a wider catchment area. Our Values The College has defined a set of core values which inform and guide all aspects of our work: Excellence delivering outstanding courses and services to inspire and motivate our students. Student centred - placing the interests of the student at the centre of all College activities, maximising their potential and celebrating their success.

6 Strategic Aims STRATEGIC AIMS Our Strategic Aims have been drafted with a view to combining a commitment to our mission with a commitment to playing our part in the community more generally. The high level strategic aims which will guide our future work are as follows: 1. Deliver an outstanding teaching and learning experience to enrich all our students and ensure they are equipped for their future careers (An Outstanding Learning Experience) Strategic objectives: Improving success rates for all students Improving the quality of teaching and learning Expanding the College s skills based curriculum Improving the range and impact of student support 2.

7 The Community we serve and Shaping the Strategic Plan THE COMMUNITY WE SERVE The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is characterised by considerable diversity. Since 1991, the development of Canary Wharf as a major financial district has brought considerable infrastructure development to Tower Hamlets. Beyond this, the area is typified by a mix of modern apartment accommodation and housing association stock. The Borough s population is set to increase over the next 10 years, with additional housing and education and training provision all scheduled. Tower Hamlets is a young and ethnically diverse Borough; 56% of the population is non-white and 70% are under 30. The largest ethnic group other than white British is Bangladeshi, accounting for 30% of residents. Tower Hamlets continues to be one of the most disadvantaged areas in the country (currently rated third most deprived out of 374 English local authority districts), with unemployment nearly twice the London average. The nature of the population is illustrated by examining the postcodes of the College s students, with 90% coming from widening participation backgrounds. The economic activity rate in Tower Hamlets is the lowest in the country. 78 different languages are spoken. Fifty-seven per cent of school pupils are entitled to free school meals and child poverty levels are the highest in the country. One in three households has no wage earner and more than a quarter of all residents have no qualifications. SHAPING OUR STRATEGIC PLAN Our strategic plan has been developed at a time of accelerated change for the learning and skills sector and when the impact of the recession is presenting severe restrictions on public sector funding. An increasing level of accountability to local communities and the need to secure public services more efficiently and effectively create considerable challenge and change for our operations. For Tower Hamlets College this means increasingly aligning our priorities and actions with the social, economic and employment priorities of the communities the College serves, which we see as Tower Hamlets and the east London sub-region. The raising of the participation age for young people creates an opportunity for the College to develop further its full time programmes for 14 to 19 students, including academic and vocational and apprenticeship routes. For adults and employers, there will be an increased focus on professional and higher level skills, action to continue to improve basic skills and initiatives to support programmes in key sectors, including Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths based subjects and digital technology. To achieve the ambitions set out in this strategic plan the main differences that the College identifies for the context of our operations in the period to 2014 period are: The need for even closer alignment with London Borough of Tower Hamlets priorities. The impact of the recession and the challenges that will be presented across the economy and for public sector funding in general. The need to shape our provision to respond to the raising of the participation age to 17 by 2013 and to 18 by The need to adapt successfully to fundamental changes in the planning and funding of further education more generally. The opportunities provided through developments at Canary Wharf. The need to meet the demands on colleges of the new freedoms and flexibilities agenda.

8 Delivering the Strategy DELIVERING THE STRATEGY AN OUTSTANDING LEARNING EXPERIENCE 1. Deliver an outstanding teaching and learning experience to enrich all our students and ensure they are equipped for their futures The College s aim is to provide outstanding teaching and learning and support for students and to be recognised as achieving at this high level, based on externally validated quality measures and student satisfaction. To achieve this, the drive for success at the College must remain strong and the support for students must be targeted and personalised to address individual needs. The success of all our students is a collective responsibility for staff across the College. All our programmes of study will embrace a clear academic, vocational and practical focus with particular emphasis on the knowledge, skills and abilities needed for employment, study and life. Mechanisms for collecting and responding to student satisfaction will be strengthened. Retention and student satisfaction will continue to be enhanced through a provision of social, cultural and recreational activities. We will provide an outstanding experience for our students through our teaching, learning and social activities by: 1.1 Improving success rates for all students Deliver a teaching and learning strategy that maximises individual achievement and ensures success rates remain high by comparison to national averages and our competitors. Increase the proportion of high grades for young people and achieve positive value-added rating for our students according to the nationally recognised measures. Address any patterns of weaker attainment that might emerge for groups of students, in line with our commitment to equality and diversity. Ensure that initial assessment of individuals needs routinely informs lesson and course delivery. Improve the target setting process through training for tutors and teachers and take further steps to monitor student progress more rigorously. Review numeracy and literacy strategies across College and the effectiveness of teaching to ensure students are supported and developed. Take further steps to personalise the curriculum and its delivery, especially through e-learning. 1.2 Improving the quality of teaching and learning Develop a new lesson observation strategy that improves the rigour of observations with greater emphasis on development and support and targeted peer review. Increase the proportion of good and outstanding teaching to 75% by 2012/13 through rigorous and targeted continuous professional development. Develop resource materials related to subject based and cross College priorities, including an in-house online portal. Appoint Advance Practitioners to support the development of high quality curriculum delivery and provide formalised peer support.

Measurements will include: success rates; lesson observation grades; student progression; Ofsted judgements; results of other external assessments; student destinations; student satisfaction. ENGAGING AND RESPONDING 2. Advance economic and social prosperity by extending our work with employers, the public sector and the wider community The College needs to adapt successfully to fundamental changes in the planning and funding of further education. This includes the need to respond to the raising of the participation age and the need to strengthen links with employers and extend our strategic partnerships with economic development and business support agencies. There is a need to maintain a responsive approach to LBTH priorities on the part of the College, especially those targets related to educational attainment, skills and employability. The College will continue to widen access working in partnership with schools, other colleges private training providers, community partners, universities and employers to develop new provision and varied pathways that facilitate individual progression. We will continue to work with groups at risk of being marginalised, for example unemployed, migrant workers, people leaving looked after provision and young carers. We will advance the social and economic prosperity of our communities by:

10 Delivering the Strategy 2.1 Providing high quality, comprehensive provision Increase the participation of young people aged through partnerships with schools and LBTH for the year olds, including courses specifically designed for learners at risk of falling into the NEET category.

Establish the College as the first choice partner for the LBTH and its strategic partners for skills, education and employability training. Extend community activities and learning for leisure to reach and benefit a wider section of our community. Provide programmes that support social inclusion, through partnerships with voluntary and community organisations, lifelong learning services, children s services, universities, schools and other learning providers.

IMPROVING OUR SUSTAINABILITY AND EFFICIENCY 4. Provide outstanding financial and physical resources to support an independent, successful and secure College In the face of tightening public sector funding, increased competition and commissioning of provision, financial stability is essential to the achievement of the College s vision and the aims within this strategic plan. The financial strategy pursued by the College must support our capital investment priorities. At the same time, the College maintains its commitment to outstanding category financial health as being the norm, throughout the period of the strategic plan. Improving institutional sustainability will mean that the College s offer will be tailored to support income growth. The College will need to reduce its dependency on traditional core funding routes as well as increasing income from other sources. At the same time we will continue to review and refine our services to ensure they are delivered effectively and efficiently. Investment in our estate will remain a priority to ensure that the College provides high quality, accessible accommodation and physical resources for students and staff. The College s property strategy and accommodation review has been completed. This will inform future investment requirements against our curriculum priorities. We will maintain our financial strength and ensure students have access to high quality learning environments by: 4.1 Remaining a College with outstanding financial health Achieve the College s overall financial plan and maintain outstanding Category financial health, with break-even budgets as a minimum.
