Our Learning, Assessment & Teaching strategy recognises that learning, assessment and teaching are not mutually exclusive and the effectiveness of each is dependent on the others.

Learning is at the centre of all pedagogical principles and the teacher facilitates learning by providing appropriate opportunities and strategies; assessment is integral to learning as it evaluates the effectiveness of these opportunities and strategies.  View our complete Learning, Assessment and Teaching Strategy.

The vision:

The cornerstones of LEARNING, ASSESSMENT and TEACHING at Lincoln College are that:

  • Learners enjoy challenging, well-paced and dynamic sessions, where their progress is celebrated and subsequently attendance is high.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors demand that learners have high aspirations and expectations regarding their achievement, behaviour and personal development.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors set challenging learning outcomes strategically for the learners that promote deep learning and raise learning aspirations for all.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors set engaging activities for learners to complete outside of lessons/sessions in order to extend their learning opportunities and to promote the development of the independent learner.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors involve stakeholders within the planning, monitoring and development of progress within every setting.
  • Learners are able to make clear links to the skills, knowledge, understanding and attributes required by employers or higher academic progression routes and are able to apply these skills in the work place.
  • Learner’s progress is checked using a range of carefully considered assessment methods. Learners engage with their feedback effectively to continually develop and progress their academic knowledge and skills.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors are confident in selecting and utilising a range of effective learning, assessment and teaching strategies, including relevant digital technologies that support multi-sensory learning.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors share resources and working effectively within learning, teaching and assessment community of practice.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors engage enthusiastically in peer observations to support their and others’ continued professional development.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors confidently embrace ‘teachable moments’ that support the development of core and employability skills as well as an understanding of British values and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors model high standards of honesty, fairness and integrity, and expect the same of learners.
  • Teachers, trainers and assessors value and stimulate independent critical thinking and creativity and empower learners with confidence. 

A common characteristic of any top performing organisation is that all who work there have absolute clarity about the following two things:

Where the organisation is going?

What is expected of me?

The Lincoln College Group Strategy– Our Journey to Extraordinary addresses those two questions by setting out the direction of travel for the Lincoln College Group (LCG).  The strategy is built around three academic years, extending to the end of the 2018/19 academic year. 

See a full copy of the Lincoln College Group Strategy 2016 – 2019.

We provide dedicated professional support which creates positive pupil behaviour and a great learning environment.  A robust Learner Disciplinary Process in place which aims to give a clear structure that supports Staff and Learners in upholding high standards of Learner conduct.

See further information regarding our Learner Disciplinary Process.
