Not one in ten;FE Letter;Further Education

IN YOUR front-page article (FE Focus, October 29) you wrongly named our college as one of the 10 with bad grades. Indeed in our inspection last year we received eight grade 2s, two 3s and only one 4. Financially, the Further Education Funding Council assesses us as grade A.
