Lincoln has good report

06 September 2013

THE management of Lincoln School of Theology has been praised by inspectors from the Ministry Division for coping well with a period of "uncertainty" regarding its future.

The diocese took sole responsibility for the School of Theology last year, and appointed an acting principal, Sally Myers, who has established a new management team.

The report gives an overall verdict of "confidence with qualifications" in the School, which, at the time of the inspection, was training 30 ordinands and 48 Readers. It expresses confidence in 12 out of 16 areas, including the curriculum for formation and education, and the community and corporate life. It makes 11 recommendations for improvement, including the appointment of staff members "to take responsibility for all aspects of training in the preparation and conduct of public worship".

The report states: "Impressive changes have been made since the diocese took sole responsibility for the course, but what we have experienced is very much 'work in progress' and needs seeing in that light."
