Ofsted good practice example on how Royal College Manchester is helping its students to exercise choice and express their opinions.
Royal College Manchester is very successful in helping its students to develop their active communication skills and to exercise choice and express their opinions in all aspects of their programme. The 2013 inspection judged that students make excellent progress towards achieving their planned learning and independence goals. Their targets are broken down into small steps in learning to provide appropriate challenge and cover all aspects of the student’s programme, including communication, behaviour and independence.
Progression into employment has improved significantly over the last three years, with a high proportion of students progressing into paid, voluntary and self-employment.
