Meeting the challenge of compiling a concise, judgemental self assessment report that accurately reflects the learning organisation requires a great deal of skill, patience  and endurance.  Recognising that learning organisations are  dynamic, busy, demanding and rewarding  places to work in.  This workshop will offer quality practitioners  an opportunity to discuss  and examine eight key components that drive an effective self assessment culture to further improvement.

Delegates will leave with good practice strategies that will enhance and further improve their  self assessment reports.

Speakers

Pat Denham OBE,

Company Director - PRTD

Pat was born in Solihull and attended school, college and university in the South East of England.
Pat began her teaching career in Athens, Greece, before moving to the Isle of Wight College, where she
was appointed senior manager in 1990. One of her first roles was successfully preparing the college for
transition from local government to independent funding. Pat was then appointed College Nominee and
guided the college through its first Further Education Funding Council (FEFC) inspection. During this
period she successfully completed her Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification and gained
licentiate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Pat also qualified
as an FEFC part-time inspector.
Pat was appointed Head of Staff and Quality Services at Bridgwater College, Somerset, in 1996. Over the
next eight years Pat also served as the College Nominee for FEFC inspection, Clerk to Audit, and
Institutional Reviewer for two Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) reviews. During Pat’s time in these roles
the college achieved an FEFC grade of Outstanding for all areas, and a QAA Review outcome of 23 out
of the maximum 24 points. These outstanding results led to the college achieving Beacon status and
becoming nationally recognised as one of the most successful further education establishments in
England.
Pat was appointed Assistant Principal at South Devon College in 2004. In just four years she guided the
college from an OFSTED inspection of Unsatisfactory to Outstanding. Pat was appointed Vice Principal
and Deputy Chief Executive Officer in 2009. Over the next six years the college’s many achievements
included the Investors In People (IIP) Gold and Champion status, Matrix Standard, and eight Beacon
Awards. The college also successfully piloted the new OFSTED Common Inspection Framework in
2014. During this time Pat became a fully-trained OFSTED associate inspector, undertook inspections at
various colleges and educational institutions, and achieved membership of the OFSTED Scrutiny Panel.
Pat is honoured to be a Patron of the Motivational Preparation College for Training (MPCT), an
outstanding learning/training provider, having worked with them since 2011.

Pat is proud to have been awarded an OBE for Services to Further Education in 2012.

Pat is a passionate believer in further education and its ability to make a real and lasting difference to all
learners. Following her early retirement in 2015 she continues to share her experience of establishing
high quality accessible learning environments. Working with inspirational leaders and teams she
supports various public and private sector organisations to help them achieve a culture of continuous self
assessment and self improvement.
Pat enjoys kayaking, walking, playing tennis, reading and travelling.
