Not very good - it has major problems attracting and retaining staff and pass rates are
nothing special.

Not supprised, my colleage went there for a job and passed some very pointed remarks about the
principle and his management style.

Thats the problem - too many principles - like no, the chap from Devon can not be interviewed first
because I said so (at a suggestion from someone who lived a lot closer).;-)

Northampton College is ok. It has the right staff, some could do with retraining here and there... some of the buildings could do with being done up. The key to a good college its ability to assess the needs of its students on a more personal and one to one level. I.e the students union.The student union there strugles to ever get any bigger or to have any remote sucess due to the fact that people dont really care about students needs. No mattet how much any of the SU team struggle to deal with students issues they are constantly forced back by the usual system of chiefs and adults who dont really care what the students want. They only care about their own jobs and there everyday working environment.
Northampton College is ok, better than most, but it could be made better if for once the directors starting listening to their students and the Students Union, instead of mis construding the truth, the truth being that the students are not happy with the environment in which they have to study in.
