96% of college students rate Confetti positively in new QDP national survey

Wednesday April 5, 2023

The results are in and according to a brand new survey by QDP, an overwhelming 96% of college-level students currently studying at Confetti rate us positively as a place to study. The independent survey is formed of several questions that collect data on our students overall experience studying at Confetti, including the quality of teaching, access to support, and inclusivity.

Confetti took part in the nationally recognised QDP student survey as part of our partnership with Access Creative College. Our institution has a long history with this survey and in recent years, has achieved some excellent results.

We’re still rated Ofsted ‘Good’!

Following our most recent inspection, we are delighted to share that we’re still rated Ofsted ‘Good’!

At Confetti, our further education courses are delivered in collaboration with Access Creative College – a national training provider which offers creative courses in seven cities across the country.

Without Access, we would not be able to offer amazing college courses in Digital MediaEsports ProductionFilm & TVGamesLive Events ProductionMusic PerformanceMusic Technology and Visual Effects and Animation.

That’s why it’s fantastic news that Access has yet again been awarded Ofsted’s ‘Good’ rating, grade 2 on their four-point scale.

Confetti had a big role to play in achieving this rating, as our courses make up over 25% of Access’ total provision. The result shows that our tutors and course leaders maintain the highest possible standards across quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management. Let’s find out what Ofsted Inspectors had to say about our fantastic Confetti team members:

“They [Confetti] recruit many learners from socially disadvantaged backgrounds [and] work tirelessly to ensure that all learners, irrespective of background, develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to thrive in the creative sectors. In so doing, they provide exciting opportunities for learners.”

“Teachers use their extensive skills and experience from industry to inform their teaching. They teach learners practical skills to high standards through clear explanation, demonstration, and repetition, so that the skills become automatic.”

“Learners benefit from the strong culture of mutual respect and understanding that leaders and managers have created. Learners have a deep understanding of equality and diversity, and many demonstrate this within their work. Learners feel safe at college and in the working environment.”

A massive thank you goes out to our Confetti tutors and course leaders for their dedication. To read the report, please visit the Ofsted website.
