Ofsted Seminars: Understanding and managing inspection

"Up-to-date input, with strong philosophical thinking as well as the understanding of new inspection framework implications." | Past delegate, 2019

These popular, one-day seminars provide a comprehensive overview of Ofsted's new 2019 Education and Inspection Framework (EIF) for both short and full inspections, with an update on key changes and a focus on how to manage the inspection.

A range of practical activities will assist delegates once they are back at school to build confidence and support school improvement, without driving up workload.

Participants will:

  • understand how the new EIF works
  • understand the evaluation criteria and how they are applied
  • gain an in-depth understanding of the scope and 'deep-dive' methodology of the  new 'quality of education' judgement which centres on the curriculum
  • gain advice on how to manage the inspection, including the new 90-minute pre-inspection phone call
  • explore what effective self-evaluation looks like
  • gain an insight into any emerging inspection issues
Please note: This seminar provides opportunities for discussion with other delegates. We also offer condensed, half-day briefings which provide updates on the key information relating to the new EIF.
