Following our 2015 Ofsted visit, we are pleased with the report as it praises our 'exceptional' support for learners and the way in which we plan learning and the curriculum to meet the needs of the community. This is absolutely what RHACC's mission is all about.

Key information about our Privacy Policy.

In 2016, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) completed a Higher Education Review of Richmond Adult Community College (RACC). The main purpose of these reviews is to make judgements on the academic standards and quality of Higher Education provision.

The outcomes of this review, published in October 2016, state that Higher Education provision at RHACC meets UK expectations in all areas, namely:

The maintenance of the academic standards
The quality of student learning opportunities
The quality of the information about learning opportunities
The enhancement of student learning opportunities

"RACC is proud of its tradition of enabling access for non-traditional learners to further and higher education. The quality of the learner experience and support for learners on the small HNC and HND provision at RACC was praised by the reviewers."
