Teaching quality inspectors have awarded the University of Warwick a perfect score of 24 points out of 24 for the quality of teaching in its Education departments. The inspectors also went to great lengths to praise the quality of the teaching sessions they saw saying in their report that "they were of a consistently high standard - the only word to describe them is 'fantastic'".
This is Warwick's fourth perfect score of 24 points out of 24 (the other departments to gain this score being Sociology, Theatre Studies, and Physics ). The inspection team praised all three of the University education departments they assessed - Warwick's Institute of Education, The Centre for English Language Teacher Education (CELTE), and the University's Department of Continuing Education. The inspectors also particularly noted:
- "The wide range of vocationally relevant, academically challenging and well-organised and structured courses which meet the needs of students and their sponsors locally, nationally and internationally"
- The fact that "Courses are enhanced by research and scholarship"
- The "Impressive standard of student work - much of it was publishable or published"
- The "Excellent student support and guidance" they especially praised the work of the University's international office and support on offer for international students
- Excellent progression and completion rates
- The role of the Students Union in supporting students
- Effective and very positive relations with partner colleges for the Certificate in Education course.
