Students progression between all levels of study and into employment is very high. Students success rates have increased and are high on most land-based courses. Teachers use learning resources, including the estate, livestock and the very wide range of other practical resources, very well to help students learn. Teaching of practical skills is good and students undertake a wide range of challenging practical projects which support their learning. The principal, governors and staff have worked very well together to form a new college where staff morale is high and everyone has a common purpose across the Norfolk and Suffolk Campuses to make sure that students succeed. Partnerships with local and regional industries are highly productive and bring many benefits to students and employers as well as promoting the land- based sector within the region. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
