Amidst the current economic downturn there is a beacon of hope for our region in the shape of Chichester College Group, which has received an Outstanding Ofsted rating across the board.
Chichester, Worthing, Crawley and Brinsbury colleges are all part of the group, providing opportunities for young people and in turn creating skilled employees for local business.
These colleges offer a range of valuable qualifications from A-levels to apprenticeships, vocational learning to Higher Education, preparing students for a wide range of career paths available locally, including creative and digital technologies, construction, engineering and tourism to name but a few.
Our region will continue to rely on the skills of its workforce for economic prosperity as the entire nation pushes forward through the chaos created by Covid-19.
That our county’s largest education provider is now officially Outstanding in all nine Ofsted categories is surely a reason to be hopeful.
