Ofsted has now announced in detail its plans for carrying out what it calls ‘interim visits’ in the autumn period up to the end of December. At that point, full inspections with graded/progress judgements will recommence on 1st January 2021.
Whilst the visits are being billed by Ofsted as ‘professional discussions’ during which inspectors will not make any judgements or change any grades, providers will undoubtedly want to put their best foot forward and show themselves off to the best of their ability. Particularly those who currently ‘require improvement’ and who can expect a full inspection early in the spring term.
This webinar will tell you how to do just that and how to avoid the consequences of Ofsted having serious concerns about your provision at the end of one of these visits.
At the end of this webinar, you will have learned about:
Senior leaders and managers responsible for managing all aspects of the education and training provision and learner experience within those providers in scope for an interim visit; in particular, those nominated senior members of staff who will act as the provider’s main link with the inspectors carrying out the visits.
Please note this webinar is not for those new providers who failed their first short monitoring visit. When inspected again by Ofsted in the autumn, they will receive another short monitoring visit carried out in the same way as the first visit. The process for a short monitoring visit is covered in a separate webinar delivered by the AELP. They will receive another short monitoring visit carried out in the same way as the first visit.
