Class Audit October 2018

Class Audits are in your pigeon holes for you to collect and complete at the time of marking your registers this week.

The data stored on the system will form the College’s ILR return and students’ attendance records will be checked by auditors to ensure they were on roll on census dates.   It is extremely important that registers are accurate and marked correctly so that leavers can be identified and removed promptly.    Students on your register at this point will be counted as a ‘Start’ and be included in Success, Retention and Achievement statistics used by Inspectors.

Please complete the form this week during every lesson and return to Donna Wright at the end of the week once completed.
