BROCKENHURST COLLEGE'S ETHOS and core purpose, explains its principal Di Roberts, can be traced back to the views of the Greek philosopher and one-time slave Epictetus, who wrote: "Only the educated are free." Roberts adds: "We are passionate about our belief in education and the contribution that learning can make to the fulfilment of people's lives." The Hampshire college was described by Ofsted as "outstanding" last year, with inspectors highlighting leadership and management as being among its key strengths. Our staff survey revealed an exceptional regard for managers (71% overall, the highest score among all 75 public bodies). The college's 670 employees believe their boss cares for them as individuals (77%) and wants to ensure staff job satisfaction (70%). Managers regularly congratulate people on a job well done (73%) and listen as well as tell (75%) — all top scores among mid-sized bodies. As a result, employees feel they have their manager's support (76%, another top ranking) and are confident in the leadership skills of their boss (71%). Located in the heart of the New Forest national park and known as Brock locally, the college attracts more than 2,700 school-leavers. Last year, A-level students broke its own records with an overall pass rate of 98.8%, notching up a 100% rate in 30 subjects. Its employees rate Brock highly, giving the college a 77% positive score, bettered by just one other organisation, for the My Company factor of our survey. They love working for the college (76%), view what they do as an important part of their lives (78%), and would have to think very carefully about leaving if offered a post elsewhere (72%). www.brock.ac.uk

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

88% of staff agreed

I feel proud to work for this organisation

At the core of Brockenhurst's or Brock as everyone knows it locally, approach has been recognition that if the students are to have a great educational experience then the people who provide that opportunity both front of house and behind the scenes must be motivated, interested and knowledgeable. The latest step on the improvement journey has been the introduction of Good to Great a change process that has staff at its heart. Once a year all staff are involved in identifying the areas of change that would make most contribution to improving the college's performance. This is used to prioritise projects and investment. Last year this process led to major changes in the sixth-form timetable, the introduction of personalised learning, a revision of the tutorial system and a drive on reducing paperwork – the bane of any educational establishment. The college works hard to build and maintain a shared sense of mission and does this through detailed induction and training; all college training days, end of term socials, morning meetings, weekly staff newsletters and ½ termly newsletters.
