Consultancy and training in the Further Education and Skills sector
Consultancy and training on all aspects of quality improvement; working with a range of providers including colleges; voluntary sector; independent learning providers; community learning; local authorities; and regional networks. Carolyn Medlin, the Director of Fairfield Associates, also works as an inspector.
Our focus is on helping providers to do their jobs. We take a pragmatic approach, based on what works for each of our clients. We are very proud of our success. That is, 100% of all organisations we've worked extensively with have improved at least one grade following an Ofsted inspection or where they have previouDsly been judged as Good at their last inspection, maintained or improved their grades.
What our customers say:
"The training I attended with you on the SAR is perhaps the most important, useful and memorable training I have had in my quality role... we have had our Ofsted short inspection on 3rd and 4th Oct... and it feels like all I learned starts paying off... so thank you!!" November 2017
Congratulations to our providers:
- our independent learning provider inspected for the first time (February 2017) where their Good grade for Overall Effectiveness matched Ofsted's as well as their key judgements in their self-assessment report
- our further education college who maintained a good grade at their inspection (May 2017)
- our independent learning provider who maintained a good grade at their inspection (July 2016).
