Peter Nangle has been appointed vice-principal with responsibility for Learning and Achievement at Calderdale College.

Peter Nangle has been appointed vice-principal with responsibility for Learning and Achievement at Calderdale College.

Mr Nangle was formerly head of Business, Computing and Technology at Blackburn College which was judged to be ‘outstanding’ at its last Ofsted inspection.

“Calderdale College has made huge strides forward in recent years, with a broader curriculum reaching out to individuals and the business community”, said Mr Nangle. “It offers a greater number of courses at degree level, including a range of new work-related Foundation Degrees, and is in the top five per cent of schools and colleges nationally for the ‘contextual added value’ score of achievement by those aged 16 or over. Improved success rates for learners and an ambition for excellence in delivering skills and learning won the College a ‘good’ rating in its last Ofsted report.
 

“The College has clear strategies in place along with excellent values and can, I believe, take significant steps forward over the next twelve months to achieve ‘outstanding’ status”, he continued. “We will achieve that by continuing to broaden the curriculum so that it’s responsive to the needs of local businesses as well as school leavers and mature learners. Calderdale College is a community resource that anyone can access to improve their prospects and realise their ambitions. It is well positioned to deliver its commitment to provide learners with the best possible learning experience”.
