We support the sector through leadership and guidance including: • Supporting research by participation and sponsorship • Bringing new ideas to the sector such as social impact measurement through social return on investment of sector bodies • Our sector experts are active members of many bodies • Seminars and training • Commentary on emerging issues Baker Tilly is, therefore, delighted to sponsor this award for Outstanding Leadership of Improvement, recognising the critical role undertaken by leaders and governors in sustained improvement.

  2. 2. Baker Tilly and Association of Colleges Award for Outstanding Leadership of Improvement Baker Tilly and the Association of Colleges are pleased to sponsor this Beacon Award for outstanding leadership of improvement. The award is open to all further education, sixth form and tertiary colleges in the UK. This award aims to recognise the critical role undertaken by leaders and governors in improving college provision and developing capacity for sustained improvement. Leadership capacity should be evidenced by securing dramatic improvements in quality confirmed by inspection and/or improvement in the quality of teaching and learning confirmed by significant improvements in learners’ achievements. The assessors will look for evidence that effective leadership and management, at the Principalship and Governing/Corporation Board levels, has been visionary and ambitious for the college and has demonstrated a relentless and uncompromising focus on improving teaching and learning that has produced positive results and a significant impact on learners. Colleges should demonstrate how their provision meets the following: • a shared and learner-focused culture that is supported by clear targets for improvement • the effectiveness of governors in supporting and enabling college managers to improve and sustain high quality provision • effective leadership and management of organisational change for the benefit of its clients, customers, learners, staff and community • a curriculum offer that has been developed in response to the learning needs of individuals, groups, organisations and partners in the college’s local community, and that results in high standards of outcomes for learners • creation of value for the sector by identifying the strategies and key transferable messages that work in securing improvement and from which other providers can learn. 10 Further education - serving the needs of a better society and strong economy
