London Churchill College Ltd has satisfied the initial conditions of registration with the OfS.
However, a Quality and Standards Review by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) has identified the following concerns, which could pose risks to quality and standards for students:
- The college does not routinely provide sufficient support to students on work experience elements of their courses, particularly the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Social Care. It is also not consistently assessing these work experience elements.
- The college does not routinely take sufficient action to monitor and address attendance rates on some courses including Business courses and the HND in Social Care. It does not always produce definitive data on student attendance or plans to ensure that students are suitably supported.
- The college does not have a robust approach to securing academic standards delivered in partnership with work placement providers for the HND in Social Care course. The college does not manage its relationships with placement providers effectively to ensure that students, college staff, and the placement providers understand their respective roles and responsibilities.
London Churchill College Ltd has stated that it has already taken a number of actions to address these concerns. We have imposed a specific ongoing condition of registration which requires the college to have a future assessment of quality and standards to test the credibility and impact of these actions.
