College Review has been developed in partnership with Grantham College and a small group of Colleges of Further Education that initiated the ever expanding User Group.


College Review is used by those concerned with performance and quality management in Colleges of Further Education and 6th Form Colleges - Deputy Principals, Heads of Standards, Performance/ Quality Managers etc. They will discuss, and agree, its use within the College and organise its deployment, as appropriate.

College Review was launched: as version 3.4 in 2004 and upgraded initially to versions 3.4.1 and 3.4.2 and 3.5 in 2004 with major upgrades to version 4.1 and 4.2 in Autumn 2005 and Summer 2006 respectively to meet the needs of the User Group.

The Observe program to support the lesson observation programme in Colleges was developed in Summer 2006 at the suggestion of the User Group.


College Review's framework and software features: The framework and software features of College Review are fully described, with screen shots, in the mini website Working with College Review

The User Group: All users of College Review, who have a full annual licence, are members of the College Review User Group which meets regularly to discuss best practise in using College Review and identify and agree added value upgrades to the software;

Members of the User Group are also forming relationships to share their templates and their evolving practice.

The cost of agreed software upgrades is shared by members of the User Group.

IT Training Guide: To enable experienced users of the software to train others who will use the software in their College there is an IT Training Guide that can be downloaded in PDF format and printed out. This IT training pack can also be used by individuals. In all cases those receiving training should complete the IT exercises on their computer.
