Skills Minister Phil Hope has congratulated the town for bringing the provision of education and training for young people up to a ‘satisfactory’ standard.

He added: “I am particularly pleased to see that leadership and management is now judged to be ‘good’, reflecting the strong commitment of partnership working at all levels”.

The report highlights how strategies formulated by Campus Luton for 14 to 19 education and training have begun to have an impact on the breadth of the curriculum on offer.

Alison Batten, Campus Luton’s 14-19 director said: “The report recognises the strength of collaboration between schools, colleges and other partners leading to improving standards, a wider range of curriculum opportunities and increased progression at 16”.

The report praised the quality of education and training provision for the over-16s.
The quality of work-based learning was improving and links with employers enabled young people to understand the world of work, the report also said.
