Ofsted's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills, Christine Gilbert, praised Uxbridge College in the annual list of outstanding providers published by the inspection body.

The College was honoured in a celebratory event to recognise outstanding adult skills and work-based learning provision in further education colleges in England.

Providers on the list deliver an excellent quality of education across the full range of their work and attain high levels of achievement.

At the event, outstanding providers were asked to discuss 'the secret of their success' so that Ofsted can help to raise the standard in this sector.

Hosting the celebration, Ofsted's Chief Inspector recognised the determination, ambition and commitment it takes to become an outstanding provider.

Ms Gilbert said: "I wholeheartedly congratulate the management, staff, and students of all outstanding settings on their success and hard work. Outstanding providers have vision, courage and conviction, and the ability to create and inspire their staff, their students and the communities they serve. They show what can be achieved with aspiration and determination."

Uxbridge College Principal Laraine Smith said: "Outstanding is not a rating you achieve overnight, it takes a tremendous effort and needs everyone to pull together. To achieve outstanding, excellence needs to be embedded in the culture."

Further Education colleges, adult skills and work based learning providers that appear on the Outstanding Providers list 2007/08 receive commemorative certificates and are authorised to use an exclusive "outstanding provider" logo. In England 2,940 schools, colleges, childcare and social care providers were judged to be outstanding in the inspection cycle 2007-2008.
